Coast Guard Offers Hands-On Damage Control Training to Mariners

JUNEAU, AK – The Coast Guard will offer free hands-on vessel damage-control classes during the Little Norway Festival in Petersburg on May 18, 19 and 20. Coast Guard representatives will utilize a mobile damage control trainer unit to give commercial vessel operators an opportunity to hone their skills at plugging a holed hull or patching a burst pipe.

The Coast Guard especially encourages commercial fishermen to participate, though anyone associated with commercial vessels of any type is welcome. The trainer will be located next to the Petersburg Harbor Master’s Office. Use of the trainer will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
