July
2012

April 15, 2012 marked the 100th anniversary of the loss of the ocean liner Titanic in the North Atlantic Ocean approximately 2½ h after hitting an iceberg. More than 1,500 people died in the most famous maritime disaster in history. Thousands of pages have been written about the loss of the Titanic, and many documentary and fictional movies produced. Many focus on the construction of the ship and the actions of its captain and crew. Whatever the construction and operating issues, attention to one particular issue could have saved many lives — emergency preparation.
