“More than 60 personnel from 424 (Transport and Rescue) Squadron, with their CC-130H Hercules aircraft and CH-146 Griffon helicopters, will conduct TIGEREX 2016, a search and rescue (SAR) exercise, in the Sault-Ste. Marie, Ontario area from May 9 to 13, 2016.
Throughout the week, multiple simulated SAR (search and rescue) scenarios are organized to put the skills of the SAR team to the test. This provides 424 Squadron’s SAR crews, and the crews of partner agencies, invaluable interaction and exposure to how SAR operations are conducted and how they can better work together in responding to life-saving calls. The exercise will focus on boat and land SAR scenarios, medical exercises, as well as local emergency response procedures”.
