>Day Three and Final: CANUSDIX 2009

>This morning concluded CANUSDIX 2009 with a continued Table Top Exercise and a live oil spill response equipment deployment. I was underway with USCGC Anthony Petit, with other Coast Guard members from Sector Juneau, D17 Response Advisory Team, and Coast Guard National Strike Force Pacific as we worked together to assemble and deploy the vessel of opportunity skimming system. Canadian Coast Guard Cutter Provo Wallis and other response vessels from Canadian agencies participated. The weather was moderate but the wind was calm and the deloyment went very smooth. Check out the pictures below for a look at our day here in Prince Rupert, British Columbia and thanks for reading! Till the next exercise…

Very Respectfully,

LTJG Andrea Manuel
