By Peninsula Daily News staff

PORT ANGELES — At least 120 law enforcement and emergency personnel took part in a training exercise at the MV Coho ferry dock in downtown Port Angeles on Tuesday night, the city's deputy police chief said.

Deputy Chief Brian Smith said the exercise involved several agencies, including Port Angeles Fire District and Clallam County Fire District No. 2, Port Angeles and Sequim police, Clallam County sheriff's deputies, State Patrol, Coast Guard and Coho crew members.

The goal of the training, which ran from 6 p.m. to midnight, was to prepare agencies for a mass casualty situation, Smith explained.

“It was a multi-layered exercise to test different capabilities and expose different people to different situations,” Smith said.
