I was duty fireman today, so will be off tomorrow. I’ve been loading water, as well, but cannot leave the ship for 24 hours.

If there is a fire alarm go off, I’m fire-station supervisor, overseeing the investigators, calling if to page for the full fire control team to come, etc. Also I have to check any locations before any hotwork is allowed (welding, etc), isolate zones on the smoke detector panel before hotwork is allowed, etc etc.N ot very exciting unless an alarm goes off. Then it’s quite mad. My first 3 times as duty fireman I had big false alarms.
