Frequently Asked Questions
Can I request additional articles of clothing?
We have a very limited ECW clothing inventory. In some circumstances, depending on the job description, additional articles of clothing are issued, but please do not make a request if your job description doesn’t warrant extra clothing.
If it’s your first year, it’s a good idea. It’s hard to determine what you may or may not use until you begin working and recreating.
Excess ECW gear is not available at Palmer Station or on either of the ships. If you’re at Palmer Station and realize you need another piece of gear, it is possible to request to have something sent south on the next ship.
Theft or loss of gear should be reported to the station administrator (admin) or Marine Project Coordinator (MPC). Abnormal damages or unreported loss of clothing may result in you being billed for repair or replacement costs.
Absolutely not. All gear is on loan and must be returned. Worn is okay, but defaced is not.
Yes. All gear must be returned no matter how worn or damaged it may be.
