In ships on international voyages, and in passenger ships of classes II(A) and III, each crew member must be provided with clear instructions to be followed in the event of an emergency, e. g. on a card showing his assembly or muster station, his emergency duty, and the lifeboat or liferaft to which he is allocated.
The card or other means should also describe the general emergency alarm signal and any other signals to be used in an emergency, and the action to be taken on hearing the signals. It should also show the means by which the abandon ship order is to be given. In ships with significant numbers of non- English speaking crew, emergency instructions should be provided in the appropriate language(s).
