Students to tackle trouble at sea
4:00pm Monday 7th October 2013 in News
STUDENTS will learn how to deal with a crisis situation at a sea port during a role play day.
Over 100 pupils from across Colchester and Tendring will be attending Haven Seaport Exercise IX at Harwich International Port to be taught what to do in a scenario where several ships become damaged.
They will also work alongside representatives from Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, Essex Police, Essex County Fire and Rescue Service and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency and discover employment opportunities at the event on Tuesday.
