Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary, partners to participate in Maritime Search and Rescue Exercises on Lake Erie May 27, Lake Ontario May 28 2017

Toronto, ON - The Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary (CCGA) with its Search and Rescue partners will exercise their search and rescue skills in the waters of eastern Lake Erie Saturday May 27, and on western Lake Ontario May 28 2017.  

These exercises are being conducted as part of regular ongoing training between the CCGA, the Canadian Coast Guard, the Department of National Defence and the Niagara CARES unit of the Civil Air Search and Rescue Association (CASARA).

These exercises will test the shared response to distress incidents on the Great Lakes, to ensure search and rescue teams and agencies are as prepared as possible to respond and rescue people on the water.

On Saturday May 27 CCGA units on Lake Erie - the Dirt Water Fox, Fort Erie Fire Rescue and Port Colborne Marine Rescue (POCOMAR I & II) - will exercise with the crew aboard the Canadian Coast Guard Ship Cape Lambton, a motor lifeboat based in Port Dover Ontario.  

Air support from 8 Wing Trenton will again be actively participating in this exercise, as will CARES Niagara.

On Sunday May 28  CCGA units based on western Lake Ontario - Hamilton Beach Rescue (HBRU), Grimsby Rescue (GAMRU) and Oakville Marine Rescue (TOWARF) - will exercise with Canadian Coast Guard crews aboard CCGS Cape Storm stationed at Port Weller Ontario and the mid-shore patrol vessel CCGS Corporal Teather C.V.   They will be joined by air support from 424 Transport and Rescue Squadron at 8 Wing/CFB Trenton Ontario along with CARES Niagara.

Despite the recent warm temperatures, waters remain cold at this time of year and take much longer to warm up compared to the air.  For more information on cold water immersion, please visit http://csbc.ca/en/cold-water-awareness

Emergencies on the water can be reported 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, toll-free (within Canada) at 1-800-267-7270, or via marine VHF radio - channel 16.
