Ferry safety measures to get boost after SK sinking

TAIPEI -- Taiwanese ferries will be subject to more inspections and rescue drills starting within a month, the Maritime and Port Bureau said last week, addressing safety concerns in the wake of the deadly disaster on the South Korean ferry Sewol.

The operators of domestic ferries, including Taima, Hofu, Taihua, Rera and Tai Min Star, are required to launch rescue drills and reinforce onboard safety measures, the bureau said in a Friday press release.

It said it will also make sure that ferry crews are properly trained to deal with emergencies and that passengers are made aware of all safety instructions.
