No search and rescue training is complete without soaking up the scorching sun. A refamiliarization with rubber boat operation was the final exercise spent outdoors for the proficiency training.
In a coastal province like Ilocos Norte, add to that the seeming longer rainy season, a rescue boat is an essentiality. In life or death situations, a search and rescuer should be able to handle its powerful engine. In sea operation, beyond individual swimming and diving skills, excellent teamwork is fundamental like in any ballgame.
