Video of a Safety Drill aboard Radiance of Seas while in Drydock

There's a heightened probability of a fire or other type of emergency aboard ship when it's in drydock, due to the types of construction work being done and the addition of flammable material aboard. Just like at sea, the crew needs to be ready and have everyone trained. Dealing with an emergency in drydock is much different than doing so at sea. For that reason they need to practice emergency drills not only for the crew, but also for all the contractors aboard who aren't used to being aboard a ship. In this video, Christopher Bean, Chief Safety Office aboard Radiance of the Seas, shows us an emergency drill being run during the drydock in Victoria (BC).
