April 29, 2019
April 26, 2019 - Kauai Ocean Safety and Lifeguard Services transport simulated victims from Coast Guard Station 45-foot Response Boat-Medium to shore during a full-scale mass rescue exercise at Ahukini Recreational Pier State Park and Hanamaulu Bay. This is the first airport response exercise of this scale conducted in an ocean environment in the state and is essential based on the volume of air traffic in the region and the proximity of most airports to the ocean.
