October 2017 Toyofuji Holds On-Board Disaster Drill Demonstration

On October 20, Toyofuji Shipping held the company's "31st On-Board Disaster Drill Demonstration," conducted under the instruction of the Nagoya Coast Guard Office and Tokai Municipal Fire Department aboard the TRANS FUTURE 5, in port at Berth I-5 at the Meiko Center.
The drill was attended by some 80 individuals, including members from Toyofuji Shipping and representatives from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism's Chubu District Transport Bureau and Toyota Motor Corporation, as well as cargo shippers and affiliated companies in the marine transport and port services industries.
The scenario in this disaster drill involved spillage of bunker oil during fueling operations, with the aim of the drill being to minimize harm to humans and material damage and limit environmental pollution in the event of a disaster on board a company vessel.
The drill began with crew members training in recovery of bunker fuel spilled on board and preventing further spillage of the fuel outside the vessel. Then based on a scenario wherein the bunker fuel had spilled outside the vessel, the drill continued with the Nagoya Coast Guard Office patrol boat "Ayuzuki" running through the slick with water spraying from its hoses to break up the oil, and an oil boom deployed by Tokai Tanker Co., Ltd. to contain the spill. In addition to crew member training, the exercise also included training in rescuing injured crew members using the Chubu District Transport Bureau helicopter "Isetaka" and a Tokai Municipal Fire Department hook-and-ladder truck.
Following the drill, Nagoya Coast Guard Office Vice Director Uchiyama said, "We will endeavor to repeat this type of drill to maintain and improve our skills while further strengthening links between disaster response agencies."
Toyofuji Shipping continues to give top priority to the safe operation of the company's vessels, placing this responsibility not only on personnel onsite, but with the entire company working together in our aim of achieving "zero accidents and zero disasters."
