Members of the U.S. Coast Guard, the Santa Barbara City Fire Department, and Harbor Patrol will participate in a joint training exercise this Tuesday, May 21, outside the Santa Barbara Harbor.

The cross-agency exercise — which takes place during National Safe Boating Week — will showcase the cooperation between agencies in response to water-related emergencies. The training exercise will feature mock rescues from breakwater and boats using Harbor Patrol vessels, the fire department’s Water Rescue Team, and a Coast Guard helicopter.

Safe Boating Week provides a great opportunity to re-educate your family and friends about how to boat safely, said a city spokesperson. For more information on boating laws, go here.
