2016-10-11-photo-00000023We have had a successful two day exercise on 11 and 12 October. The MIRGs had to deal with a truck on fire, an incident with hazardous liquids and a person trapped. One of the goals of the exercise was to test the team’s tasking and operational procedures. With nearly 500 participants, including observers from 15 EU and neighboring countries, and the deployment of five ships and three helicopters, this was one of the largest maritime incident response exercises ever held in European waters. The teams from the four countries showed they can handle long lasting incidents. The exercise staff looks back on a successful drill.
