Boat Explosion Response

September , 2010

Global mobilized a rapid response team to the Jim Clark Marina Explosion after one of the resident boats blew up in the early hours of August 24th, 2010. The exploding boat caused the complete destruction of it’s boat house and damaged three other boat houses including catching an adjoining boat and boat house on fire. Our crew’s initial response consisted of surveying the damage and deploying boom to prevent any debris or contamination from leaving the accident site. Global’s Dive Operations Mgr says “We were chosen as a full service emergency response provider due to our conveniently poised response equipment,our knowledgeable personnel,and our prior work experiences.”
