PFD safety success at Aberdeen Expo Published:  05 June, 2014

A TOTAL of 70 free PFD jackets for 32 boats were handed over at the Skipper Expo Int Aberdeen, making the event a huge success in promoting this SFF led safety initiative.

Scottish Fishermen’s Federation Safety Officer, Derek Cardno, said: ‘It was a fantastic show for us and we were delighted at the huge amount of interest from fishermen in our free PFD scheme.

‘Special thanks to Seafish for checking fishermen’s certificates at the show and the RNLI fishing safety team for doing the instruction sessions.

‘Skippers who still haven’t applied can do so by following the links on the SFF website, or they can phone the SFF office for more information.”
