From the Alameda Fire Department

The United States Coast Guard (USCG) will be conducting a Search and Rescue (SAR) demonstration in the San Leandro Channel, near the Bay Farm Island Bridge today at 12 p.m.

They will deploy and recover a rescue swimmer, using a USCG helicopter.

The Alameda Fire Department will also be at this event, providing firefighters who will staff a rescue boat with rescue swimmers.

“We are pleased to be able to support the United States Coast Guard during this important demonstration," said Fire Chief Michael D’Orazi. "These exercises are invaluable to our commitment for outstanding services to the community and training with our mutual aid partners."

Several of the community's elementary schools will be in attendance, observing from the shoreline.
