48 - CAPE- GAZETrETlmrsdlRy, December 24ecember 807t,988 Safety program for commercial fishermen offered at trade expo Custom Bull New Homes or Sale! Commercial fishing ranks among the world&apos;s most danger- ous occupations. Nasty weather, a fire aboard ship, a leaking hull - if you work on the water, you need to know how to handle these crises and come out alive. To help commercial fishermen and other mariners improve their safety skills, the Sea Grant pro- grams in the Mid-Atlantic region are hosting a special safety pro: gram on Jan. 29 at the East Coast Commercial Fisherman's and Aquaculture Trade Expo in Ocean City. Made possible through a grant KSI, Sea Watch team up to offer opportunities Jayson Crouch, vice president of Business Operations at Kent- Sussex Industries Inc. (KSI) has announced that Sea Watch Inter- national of Milford recently hired a KSI community-based work crew composed of 14 employees. Sea Watch has teamed up with KSI in an effort to solve a critical labor issue and to provide em- ployment opportunities to persons with disabilities. KSI is a voca- tional rehabilitation organization located in Milford whose mission is to provide support and services which help those who need spe- cialized assistance to obtain and maintain an optimal level of em- ployment. The relationship between Sea Watch and KSI is described as a "win-win relationship" by Crouch, who said, "This has been a great opportunity for KSI and our employees. The operation we are running is much like the work we do in our facility. It involves operating packaging equipment, counting, hand-packing and quali- ty control. The Sea Watch em- ployees have been great." KSI employs approximately 130 individuals at its facility in Milford and approximately 83 in- dividuals in its community-based work services program, composed of 12 work crews throughout Kent and Sussex counties.

The first session will pro- vide an overview of safety equip- ment, from flares and other dis- tress signals to life rafts, immer- sion suits, and air-sea rescues. Safety experts will then discuss how you can control damage to your vessel at sea, including how to minimize flooding and keep your vessel afloat. Guidelines for fire prevention and control also will be highlighted, including a discussion of different types of fires, their control and portable ex- tinguishers.
