Can they do this in an emergency environment of smoke and darkness

If we were in the middle of the Atlantic and had a major fire would we win?

Have my crew been drilled in a realistic environment that has challenged them to win

How do I know they know?

Have we ever accepted “And then we would” and not taken the exercise to its all conclusion

What is my main concern when dealing with an emergency incident?
