February 20, 2013
Warwick Beacon: Warwick’s Harbormasters Matthew Prendergast and Steven Brown visited the Warwick Career and Technical Center branch at Warwick Veterans High School last week to prepare 22 students in the Marine Trade Program for an exam they took Friday [February 8].
They visited students each day from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. to share their knowledge on boat handling, how to deal with maritime accidents, what to do if a person goes overboard, how to approach another vessel, how to dock a vessel, the importance of clear communication between boaters or people in the water, and more. The lesson is part of the curriculum.
