Last night Station 5, Durban, trained their trainee crew in pyrotechnics. One of our Coxswains explained how to operate the different types of pyrotechnics taking into consideration all aspects of safety.Handheld distress, handheld smoke, red rocket, illuminating rocket, pencil flares and smoke float were the topic of discussion.After all the theory was digested, a practical session was put into action were a trainee was paired with a qualified crew person to use a handheld distress flare.The training in pyrotechnics is a vital part of all NSRI crew training should they end up in difficulty while saving lives at sea.Pictures by Lorenzo Taverna-Turisan.Durban001Durban_002Durban_4
