GENERAL ALARM

The general alarm which consists of seven short blasts followed by one prolonged blast, is usually given in a distress situation such as a collision, fire on board, abandon ship, etc.

According to the occurring disaster, every crewmember must strictly follow the instructions as they appear on the boat muster or fire muster.
