Via YouTube: The U.S. Coast Guard is there to help you in an ocean emergency. Learn the proper protocol for calling the coast guard from your fishing vessel. FLIPP The Fishermen Led Injury Prevention Program (FLIPP) is an innovative project that includes commercial fishermen, researchers, extension agents, and coastal community members directly involved in the design of the project, collecting data, and in testing injury prevention strategies. The goal of FLIPP is to understand injuries in the Dungeness crab fleet and test ideas to reduce or prevent these injuries. The resources were developed from ideas from fishermen to help reduce the risk of injury and stay fishing. The project is led by the OSU College of Public Health and Human Sciences and Oregon Sea Grant, a partnership that merges occupational safety research with experience in working directly with the commercial fishing industry.
