Euphemia will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, June 13, reports; in addition, part of the waterway will also be completely closed to recreational boating at a distance of 300 meters from the coast around the Frkanj peninsula, Kandarola Bay, Cape Frkanj and the Frkanj shallows.

The exercise is being carried out by the Croatian Firefighters Association in cooperation with the relevant authorities of the homeland security system.

The plan is to practice extinguishing a fire on the deck of the Ferry of Rapska plovidba from 4 pm on Thursday in the area of the waters off the town of Rab, specifically the anchorage of the port of Rab.

The scenario is that a fire breaks out on the ship and spreads quickly, the ship’s crew loses control of the fire and therefore asks for help. A helicopter from the Croatian armed forces would then lower the NAMIRG firefighting team onto the ship.

Once the fire has been extinguished, the ship will be moved from its anchorage to the berth in the port of Rab, where the damage caused by the fire will be assessed.

In addition, during the exercise, another fire will break out in Kampor, in the area of the Frkanj peninsula, which will quickly spread to the east and endanger citizens.

The local fire departments and other additional firefighters would then begin to extinguish the fire from the mainland. These forces would be supported by water-fighting aircraft from the Croatian armed forces, which would discharge the water collected in the bay of St. Fumija into the area affected by the fire, the report continues.
