Gard Guidance Masters


Gard AS provides a 24 hour contingency service. Expertise is pooled in a contingency team trained to handle major incidents.

The emergency telephone numbers are:

For P&I:

A catastrophic incident is defined as:

“A major threat involving personal injury, death, search or rescue, damage to property or to the marine environment”.

This could arise out of a collision, fire, grounding or pollution incident – the list is almost endless.

For all other incidents, the Master should, in addition to contacting the Company
