Table top exercises to save drowning persons

Today, March 21st 2016, the last of three table top exercises took place to test the procedure for saving drowning persons before the start of the busy summer season. This procedure describes in detail which steps the different emergency services and coast guard partners take and how they work together. The participants, amongst whom a great number of coast guard partners, fill out on paper how they would operate on site. The exercises are held under the supervision of West-Flanders governor Carl Decaluwé and this year following coastal municipalities took part: De Haan, Koksijde and Knokke-Heist.
