The Indian Coast Guard (ICG) conducted the ‘Regional Level Search and Rescue Workshop and Exercise 2019’: ReSAREX- 19 off Goa coast. The two-day event was organised by Coast Guard District Headquarters-11 (Goa) to test efficiency and preparedness of ICG.

Key Points:

  • The exercise comprised of a search and rescue workshop and tabletop exercise, followed by a search and rescue exercise at sea.
  • Participants: Dornier aircraft, 5 ICG ships, 2 Chetak helicopters were used for the workshop.
  • Moreover, the resources from Captain of Ports, Indian Mission Control Centre (Bengaluru), State Marine Police, Goa Medical College, Goa state administration and Marmugao Port Trust were also pressed into service.
  • With the increase in maritime and fishing activities, further complicated by frequent cyclones, maritime search and rescue services and the need to respond to every situation with utmost clarity by exercising full coordination with other support agencies still remain a challenge.
  • The workshop also assumes significance in the wake of recent search and rescue operations carried out during cyclones Kyaar and Maha.
