Damage Control / Wet Trainer

I got to do the “wet trainer” part of the Damage Control class today, which simulates a few different types of ruptured pipes you may come across on any given ship. Honestly I psyched myself up WAY too much for it. Sure it was a clusterf–k but everyone pretty much stayed calm and we got it done.

Even though it’s a relatively “safe” and controlled training environment, it’s still very unpredictable and shows just how chaotic it can be when such a small environment suffers a casualty such as a ruptured pipe. All you can take away from training from like this is the experience, and hope you act quickly when it happens for real…
