this is a drill, this is a drill, this is a drill

Every other Thursday, we have some sort of fire drill on the ship. It is a maritime law. We are all technically mariners. Drilling is very important because you need to know what to do in the event of an emergency. The thing I appreciate about our drills is we actually evacuate the ship, a novelty to be sure. In the USA, when the hospitals run drills, or test alarms, nobody goes anywhere, ever. I have a theory that if a real alarm was raised, nobody would go anywhere because they wouldn’t know what to do! Today we had an “at sea” drill. Instead of evacuating the ship, we went to the lifeboat stations and put on life jackets. Practice makes perfect. 🙂
