In April and May the MIRGs from the MIRG-EU partner countries did their final rehearsals on the simulator in Marck en Calais. The teams went systematically through all the operational procedures. According to their trainer David Brown the training overall went well. “It was a good opportunity for the teams that participate in the Large Scale Exercise to train together”, David says. “Of course there are some learning points, but we have time to retrain and correct the procedures as well as get used to the specialist equipment the partners have now. ” The final exercise will take place on June 18 on board the DFDS cruise ferry Princess Seaways.
