ALGERIA--U.S. and Algerian Coast Guard members discuss search and rescue tactics May 26, 2008 during a two-day exercise in Algeria, in which the two nations exchanged ideas and reviewed techniques and procedures. The exercise gave Algerian coast guards a chance to test their search and rescue system at sea by simulating a real-life scenario, which required them to rescue eight men from a fishing vessel in distress. Following the exercise, the U.S. and Algerian coast guards discussed topics including communications and coordination, equipment and training requirements, and medical support aspects of a search and rescue team.
