Usually, some crew assigned to carry out the weekly test run of the emergency fire pump. Should this dedicated personnel operate the pump in emergencies as well?

Answer:

Routine checks and maintenance are normally carried out by dedicated personnel.

However, in case of accidents, it is important that a wide range of personnel must be permitted and trained to operate the pump.

PSC, USCG and vetting inspectors may randomly check the crew knowledge of emergency procedures including emergency fire pump operations.
