PHOTOS: International mass-rescue drill unfolds in the Strait of Juan de Fuca

Among the agencies involved in the drill with the U.S. Coast Guard and local responders were the Canadian Coast Guard and Joint Rescue Coordination Center Victoria.

The Coast Guard worked with several local agencies Tuesday — including law enforcement, firefighters and paramedics — as well as Canadian first-responders to simulate rescuing 60 people from the Strait of Juan de Fuca after a maritime disaster about six miles north of Port Angeles.

The U.S. and Canadian coast guards participated in the search and rescue in the Strait while others worked on triage at Coast Guard Air Station Port Angeles on Ediz Hook.

Once agencies returned to the Coast Guard station with suits that simulated victims, actual people with simulated injuries filled in.

First responders examined them and transported them to Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles, where the drill continued.
