If you can, please notify the Caroline Bay Marina office so we can also assist if required.
FIRE - Dial 911 If there is a fire, please contact 911 and inform neighboring boats, crew and any other guest who may be in immediate area.
Fire will take hold in a boat within 3 minutes. It is essential that all occupants are told to leave without delay, and do not wait to collect any belongings.
Fire Extinguishers are located on each dock pier and are clearly labelled. They are in the same pedestals which also hold the lifebuoys.
Fires on interior furnishings, fiberglass or timber can be contained with a water hose. If the fire has reached electrical equipment or flammable liquids such as gasoline, please do not attempt to use a water hose.
If you are unable to control a fire within 1-2 minutes, vacate the area and wait for the Fire Service to arrive.
MEDICAL EMERGENCIES – Dial 911 A defibrillator is located in the pump room on the starboard side of the Marina building. Instructions are clearly marked and if not followed correctly, the device will not administer a shock.
In the case of a medical non-emergency, the Marina Office has a First-Aid kit in the same location.
“MAN OVER BOARD” - Statistically, more people fall in the water while their vessel is tied up than when at sea. This is usually due to trips caused by items on the docks such as hoses, electricity cables, and cleats, and often late in the evening. Please always ensure that your area is free of items that can cause a trip or fall.
If a slip and fall happens, please remain calm and call for help. If there is no help available, please take hold of the nearest safe vessel or pontoon until help arrives.
There are lifebuoys located around the marina. There are also emergency ladders located on the docks. Additionally, the casualty can be directed to the nearest boat with a stern bathing platform and ladder.
