When choosing a marina, check around for fire protective measures such as fire extinguishers, cleanliness, clear dock passageways, security, good lighting, etc.
 
Be proactive about regular maintenance of your vessel, especially electrical and fuel systems.
 
Use only UL listed marine approval cord sets and connectors.
 
Never leave operating electrical equipment unattended.
 
Smoke alarms should be installed in vessels.
 
Have a U.S.C.G. approved fire extinguisher on board and know how to operate it.
 
Properly dispose of oily rags in an approved container.
 
Fuel portable tanks on the dock, not on your vessel.
 
Before fueling, close all compartments, hatches, and covers. After fueling open everything up and ventilate.
 
Tenants must take responsibility for preventing fire on their vessel. If you see a fire hazard bring it to the attention of marina management.
