Trimmers - when did they leave their posts?

I have I recently discovered whilst researching my family tree that I am related to both Frank & William Long who worked as Trimmers and both died when the titanic sunk. They were my 2nd cousins 4 times removed. I am currently reading ‘a night to remember’ and it got me thinking. Are their any accounts or does anyone know what the trimmers did during the sinking? When were they allowed fo go topside? etc. I’m trying to get idea of what those final few hours were like for them.
Of the 73 trimmers ‘around 20’ survived. Does any know of any accounts from surviving trimmers? I’d be interested to read that.
Also did the trimmers help during the sinking? And in what way?
Thanks!
