Re: Crew memo for helo evacuation
Is it part of a full emergency book?
It's in a binder with several other things, e.g. procedures for fire, flooding, MoB, abandon ship, etc. I ask that the crew read the book before we depart. We'll go over some of these things together as a crew, but I look to each individual to become familiar with how we should react to each type of emergency.
Fortunately, we've never had to follow any of these emergency procedures.....except once, when I pulled up the sole and found the bilge full of water. For a moment I panicked, then I did step 1, "Taste the water". It was fresh water so all was well.
