Search and Rescue exercises on Lake Ontario, Lake Erie

Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary, partners to participate in maritime Search and Rescue exercises on Lake Ontario, Lake Erie

May 21, 2015

Toronto, ON - The Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary (CCGA) with its Search and Rescue partners will conduct maritime emergency exercises in the waters of western Lake Ontario and eastern Lake Erie May 23 and 24 2015.   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 23rd CCGA units based on Lake Ontario - Hamilton Beach Rescue, Grimsby Rescue and Oakville Marine Rescue - will exercise with the Canadian Coast Guard personnel stationed at Port Weller Ontario. They will be joined by air support from 424 Transport and Rescue Squadron at 8 Wing/CFB Trenton Ontario along with CARES Niagara.

On Sunday May 24th CCGA units on Lake Erie - the Sandman III, Port Colborne Rescue (POCOMAR), and Dirt Water Fox - will exercise with Canadian Coast Guard personnel based in Port Dover.  Air support from 8 Wing Trenton will again be actively participating in this exercise, as will CARES Niagara.
