Marine Response Team Stays Prepared

Marine training

With over 37 square miles of waterways to protect, emergencies on the water are a fact of life for the marine response teams of the James City County Fire and Police Departments. As components of the regional Marine Incident Response Team (MIRT) coordinated by the Port of Virginia, our teams are comprised of a variety of specialty boats, dive and command vehicles.Last week our teams trained with their regional partners at the 12th annual Steven Todd Dooley Search and Rescue Forum in Hampton. The regional training enables our crews to work directly with other city and county units, as well as Coast Guard and military units. Various drills and simulations in both classroom and open water session environments were held, practicing search and rescue techniques, shipboard firefighting, and control of hazardous situations.
