Safety at Sea

leave a comment »

The 2010 safety at sea was both educational ans tons of fun. We drove down to Galveston at 6 (in the morning!) to the coast guard base. As soon as we got there the fun began. First we were off to Skipjack, a live in boat that goes around

Safety at Sea was SO MUCH FUN!

making sure that all the fishing boats that are out have there papers in order. Next, we got to set off flares, which is really amazing a scary at the same time because your basically holding fire. Soon after we moseyed on over to the fire hose station. After teaming up we were each able to take a whack at a fire hose. Personally, I think we did rather well

considering it was many of our first times and we all were able to hit the target. Right after a delicious lunch ( amazing hamburgers provided by the coast guard) we went to the gun simulation. Now this was many of our favorites because who doesn’t love shooting guns? (even if they were fake) The simulation was actually similar to a video game except the guns were very nearly real, one even had a air pressure kick back that was added to it. All in all it was a great day. We all had a ton of fun, and we all learned about how to be safer at sea.
