36 Conclusion UKMTO delivers a vital service to the maritime industry in this region. Emergency phone number 24/7. Coordination with military forces. Close links to industry. Provides information on the latest maritime security events. Despite a reduction in pirate activity, mariners must remain vigilant at all times. BMP should be applied following a full risk assessment Early reporting to UKMTO ensures the military can react and aim to disrupt PAG activity.
