Plummer, Jeanine D.
Costa Rican Fire Department (los Bomberos)
We developed a protocol for the Costa Rican Fire Department to inspect marinas and ports for compliance with environmental and fire protection laws. Recent incidents have caused significant environmental and property damage at these facilities. We compiled relevant laws and regulations on fire protection, researched environmental safety practices, interviewed marina management and fire officials, and assessed conditions at five ports and marinas in Costa Rica. We then created an interactive protocol that inspectors can use to determine compliance with fire prevention laws and help ensure the safe operation of ports and marinas.
