The Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) is an internationally agreed-upon set of safety procedures, types of equipment, and communication protocols used to increase safety and make it easier to rescue distressed ships, boats and aircraft. There should also be an opportunity to experience, via a simulator, the cab of a crane, used for moving containers in the docks.
