Fishing Partnership Support Services will offer a certified safety-training program this month. While the program is intended primarily for commercial fishermen, recreational boaters and fishermen can also attend.

Safety and Survival Training will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. March 23 at the U.S. Coast Guard Station Cape Cod Canal, 1 Coast Guard Road. The program will cover such topics as man-overboard procedures, firefighting and emergency communications, flood and pump operations, life raft deployment and boarding, helicopter hoist procedures, basic first aid and survival suits. Both programs are offered at no charge. Walk-ins are welcome, but pre-registration is strongly recommended.
