Abstract: In one sentence the history of maritime simulation applied to teaching future sailors is primarily that simulators filled a vacuum left by the severe reduction in opportunities for on board training as a primary resource. Of course, simulators are in any case a valuable educational tool, but though the maritime instructor would consider them worth any expense for pedagogical uses alone, many administrators may be said to appreciate the added benefit of simulators for research purposes. These two uses merge most fortuitously when a news-making accident occurs, especially if the simulators are of a high quality and integrated. 6 February, 2008, ¿M/V Und Adriyatik¿ caught fire off the coast of Istria, in Croatian waters about three hours short of the Bay of Piran. Given the proximity to Slovene waters, we were immediately called upon to assess the dangers to the environment. Yet as classes were in session we were able to involve students in the process. This paper will describe the process and the results, emphasizing the interplay between faculty and students in a complex integrated simulator facility at which a potentially urgent current maritime event is occurring. A distillation of the thesis could be that partnership between student and professor during a news-making event provides both added stimulation for the student and elevates the simulator a degree toward a vehicle for practical training. Key words: Oil Spill Crisis Management, Fire on Board, Integrated Maritime Simulator
