USPS has released three new seminars:
1. Emergencies on Board
This seminar is designed to prepare the prudent skipper for those unfortunate
situations involving accidents and emergencies on board. It will provide the
skipper with the information to prepare adequately for common emergencies and
how to actually deal with them when they occur. Topics such as preventing accidents, running aground,
fire, getting lost, towing, medical conditions, as well as other often-encountered emergencies are
covered. The seminar comes with the Emergencies on Board Quick Guide—a handy reference to use
in responding to emergency situations.
2. Fuel and Boating
This seminar assists the student in understanding the issues and problems involving the handling of
gasoline and diesel fuel and how these issues relate to boating. Sections deal with computing and
evaluating fuel consumption, system care and safety, and environmental issues associated with fueling
3. Tides and Currents
The seminar deals with how the sun and moon create tidal patterns, sources of information about tides
and tidal currents, simple ways to predict height of tide and speed of current flow and how to use both
print and electronic tide tables.
The seminars we have conducted have been a very successful and popular way to reach boaters in our
community and we definitely plan to continue them. We'll look at the new seminar materials, and
possibly add them to our future schedules. Again, please let me know if there's any particular seminar
you're interested in and we'll be sure to schedule it. The full list of all seminars and their descriptions
can be found at: www.usps.org on the Education Dept. tab.
