LASH FIRE is an international research project aiming to significantly reduce the risk of fires on board ro-ro ships. The project is running from September 2019 toAugust 2023. 

Now available: Crew training videos on Effective Manual AFV Firefighting!

Alternative-fueled vehicles (AFV) represent different types of hazards compared with vehicles with traditional fuel such as gasoline and diesel with internal combustion engines. Do our usual methods, equipment, and training work, or do we need to do something more to be safe? Watch the LASH FIRE movies here.
