Man Overboard Coast Guard Training
ASTORIA, Oregon A Coast Guard 47-foot motor lifeboat crew from Station Cape Disappointment, Washington, and a Columbia River Bar Pilot helicopter crew from Astoria search for a training dummy during a man-overboard exercise west of the Columbia River entrance Nov. 8, 2010.
The Coast Guard and Columbia River Bar Pilots began conducting the semi-annual joint drill in 2009 and continue to practice man-overboard retrieval techniques to ensure that procedures for locating a person in the water will run smoothly as they work together.
