Exercise tests out Overseas Territories mass rescue plans

Representatives from British Virgin Islands and Monserrat have put their mass rescue plans to the test in two table top exercises.

Run by search and rescue specialists from HM Coastguard, US Coastguard and with help from MRCC Fort De France, the exercises allowed the participants to work through their mass rescue operation plans. It’s part of work run by the Maritime & Coastguard Agency for the Conflict Stability and Security Fund, funded by the UK Government.
