Around 100 participants joined the Icelandic Coast Guard's drill "Faxi 23" where we trained for mass rescue of passengers on a whale watching boat. We imitated a fire on board where first responders arrived via helicopter and patrol vessels to 'put out the fire' and transport 'injured' passengers off the boat.

This exercise provided a unique opportunity to coordinate actions and communication between a passenger boat and first responders. What a great privilege to be a part of such a large training scheme and a fantastic opportunity for our crew to gain further knowledge of rescue at sea!
