"WHATEVER YOU DO, YOU NEED COURAGE.  WHATEVER COURSE YOU DECIDE UPON, THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE TO TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE WRONG. THERE ARE ALWAYS DIFFICULTIES ARISING, WHICH TEMPT YOU TO BELIEVE THAT YOUR CRITICS ARE RIGHT.  TO MAP OUT A COURSE OF ACTION AND FOLLOW IT TO THE END REQUIRES SOME OF THE SAME COURAGE THAT A SOLDIER NEEDS.  PEACE HAS ITS VICTORIES,  BUT IT TAKES BRAVE MEN TO WIN THEM."    RALPH WALDO EMERSON

Auxiliary Participates In Major Inter-agency Disaster Drill

 

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary joined a number of local agencies on Saturday in conducting a joint emergency response drill on the Hudson River in New York. The exercise involved the simulated rescue of ferry passengers, a man overboard drill and an underwater hull search.

 

The USCG Auxiliary members provided perimeter security, transported "victims" to waiting units on shore, and ferried personnel and the media between vessels.” While this exercise was pre-planned, in light of this weeks terrorist attacks in London, it underscores local governments and the Coast Guard's resolve to prepare for and respond to events that may occur here in the United States", said the Director of Auxiliary for the First CG District Southern Region USCG CDRTop Of This Page Elizabeth Young.

 

USCG Auxiliary Facility "Launch5" acted as mobile "incident command center", and was also the platform for the interagency divers. "The operation was seamless, its a real privilege to be involved in a drill of this magnitude with so many talented people" said Auxiliarist Greg Porteus, coxswain/owner of "Launch 5".

 

In addition to the Coast Guard Auxiliary, ten Westchester County fire, police and EMS agencies and seven Rockland County fire and police agencies participated. Also involved in the drill were the New York Waterways Ferry and New York State police departments.

 

"We conduct drills and exercises to assure the safety of all participants in the event of a disaster, whether they are the victims or the rescuers," said CDR Young.

 

"Today's exercise was designed so that participants who might be called to work together in the event of an incident on the Hudson River can practice their skills in a controlled environment."

 

Organizers said it was the first such large scale drill in the area. The exercise attracted considerable media with several area television stations videotaping the event for their newscasts.

 

Organizers deemed the exercise a success, noting that volunteer agencies and career response agencies successfully mustered their equipment and practiced important emergency response procedures.

 

Neil Sweeting, program administrator of the Westchester County Office of Emergency Management, designed the exercise.
