USCG Conducts Field Exercises on Green Bay


USCG Petty Officer 3rd Class Joseph Gagnon (standing on the ice) and Seaman Jennifer Pender, both from U.S. Coast Guard Station St. Ignace, Michigan, search for mannequins representing persons in distress during an ongoing field exercise on Green Bay in northern Wisconsin February 15. Representatives from the Coast Guard Research and Development Center in New London, Connecticut have been conducting drills to gather data and information to assist search and rescue responders on the Great Lakes and to decrease the amount of time needed to locate a person in distress on the ice.
