Safety at Port Solent Marina

In an emergency
  • Do not try to tackle the incident yourself - unless you are appropriately trained for the incident at hand - and it is safe to do so
  • In the event of an evacuation leave immediately and head for the nearest Fire Assembly Point. If the route is blocked, make your way to the nearest Water Evacuation Point
  • Follow all instructions given by marina staff, security and the emergency services.
General safety advice
  • First aid is available from the Marina Reception 24 hours a day
  • Locate and familiarise yourself with the positions of the marina safety boxes – you will find them on the pontoons. Nearby you will find emergency ladders.
  • Report all accidents and potential hazards to the Marina Reception immediately
  • Use rescue equipment only in the event of an emergency – advise the Marina Reception if you use any of the equipment. Misuse of this equipment may have life-threatening ramifications for future users
  • Keep the pontoons clear of materials, tenders etc.
