National capacity for intervention on ships – Navy conference

The French Navy organizes a conference at the ENSM. We have the chance to meet the vice-admiral Charles-Henri Garié, at the head of firefighter battalion and Navy commander. He will expose to us “the national capacities for intervention on ships”.

This conference will talk about new maritime risks encountered by the Navy. In fact a ships’ construction always bigger, an increasingly dense trafic and a significant risk of attack imply finding appropriate solutions.

To meet these new challenges, the French Navy is developing CAPINAV (national reinforcement capacity for intervention on board ships). Made up of accomplished sailors and firefighters, CAPINAV will operate throughout the metropolitan coastline. Moreover, Charles-Henri Garié will present the response of your fire brigade sailors on the port of Marseille.
