46 CFR 131.340 - Recommended placard for emergency instructions.
The following are the recommended format and content of the placard for emergency instructions:
(1) Close each watertight and weathertight door, hatch, and air-port to prevent taking water aboard or further flooding in the vessel.
(2) Keep bilges dry to prevent loss of stability from water in bilges. Use power-driven bilge pump, hand pump, and buckets to dewater.
(6) Offshore workers don immersion suits (if required aboard) or lifejackets if the going becomes very rough, if the vessel is about to cross a hazardous bar, if flooding begins, or when ordered to by the master.
(8) Prepare survival craft—life floats, (inflatable) rafts, (inflatable) buoyant apparatus, and boats—for launching.
(3) Launch the rescue boat and maneuver it to pick up the person overboard, or maneuver the vessel to pick up the person.
(4) Have a crew member put on an immersion suit or lifejacket, have a safety line made fast to the crew member, and have the crew member stand by to jump into the water to assist the person overboard if necessary.
(1) Cut off air to the fire: close hatches, ports, doors, manual ventilators, and the like and shut off the ventilation system.
(3) Immediately use a portable fire extinguisher aimed at the base of the flames. Never use water on electrical fires.
(4) If the fire is in machinery spaces, shut off the fuel supply and ventilation system and activate any fixed extinguishing-system.
