Video: Rescue drill at Honeymoon Island



Honeymoon Island State Park was the site Monday for a First Responders Training Exercise in which 18 lifeguards from the Pinellas County Beach Patrol and the state park got to experience the effects of working a rescue under the rotor wash of a Coast Guard helicopter. The purpose of the demonstration was to showcase enhanced coordination and communication between the Coast Guard, Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Florida Highway Patrol and the beach patrols.
