To mark Maritime Safety Week 2021, which was 5-10th July, Jersey Coastguard staff shared informative videos on the Ports of Jersey’s inaugural podcast channel. They featured three episodes highlighting maritime safety, including an interview with Jersey resident Margaret Jeffery – whose husband died of carbon-monoxide poisoning on board his boat in Jersey in 2017. We were delighted that our own President, Stephanie Trotter, was also invited to contribute to this podcast, as well as Chris Robinson from Jersey Coastguard.
Margaret kindly supports CO-Gas Safety and allowed us to share his story as one of our case studies, which can be found here
