Radio Emergency (Mayday & Pan-Pan) Procedures Forms. How to make a Mayday call from your boat!


This is a set of six (page 1 shown on left) A4 size plastic heat encapsulated forms which will be invaluable should you need to make an emergency 'Mayday' or 'Pan-Pan' call. The forms include all the details required to make the Coast Guard or emergency services aware of your emergency.
Our Radio Emergency Mayday and Pan-Pan forms takes the user through the spoken Mayday and/or Pan-pan procedure, and each type of distress call is treated separately. The set of forms need to be kept near your VHF DSC radio either in the cockpit or at the radio station below deck. The essential details such as Vessel Name, Call Sign and MMSI identification number is filled in by the user so that they will be ready for instant use should the need arise. The procedure can then be read out by the person making the call, in a calm and controlled manner, who may not be the skipper or indeed have any training in making such calls, thereby making the call in the correct protocol required by the Coast Guard. The set includes a page to write down notes during the distress call and also includes the phonetic alphabet.
