Coast Guard Joins Local Alabama First Responders for Marine Training

August 09, 2018  | 

Seven boats manned by members of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary (USCGA), St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office (SCCSO), Pell City Police Department (PCPD), Lincoln Fire and Rescue, and the New London Fire Department recently conducted training exercises on an Alabama lake, according to the St. Clair News-Aegis.

The day began with classroom training and testing, then the participants took to the water. Crews were instructed to navigate to five unknown locations and complete five different training exercises, including rescuing a man overboard, docking in a Coxswain Down situation (an alternate captain is placed at the helm), completing a search pattern, and an anchoring drill.

"To find each location, the crews had to solve complicated navigational problems," the news report said.
