If you’ve been near some of the Hudson Valley’s waterways for the past few days and have seen some police activity, there’s a good chance you’ve been watching some of the drills that have been going on for the past eight hours.
According to a Facebook post from the Dutchess County Office of Emergency Management, several agencies participated in a two-day training with the US Coast Guard. The video below depicts a rescue swimmer jumping into the water. You can see that it takes a lot of skill for both the swimmer and the helicopter pilot and that’s why they do these exercises.
