Westchester Fire, Police Marine Units Undergo Coast Guard Training [VIDEO]

More than 30 emergency responders take a U.S. Coast Guard-led search and rescue training Saturday morning.

With the always-looming possibility of someone jumping from the Tappan Zee and Bear Mountain Bridges and recreational sail boats going astray throughout the Hudson River, the U.S. Coast Guard relies regularly on backup from local police and fire departments' marine units.

On Saturday morning, the Westchester County Department of Emergency Services sponsored a training for more than 30 local emergency responders to learn skills from members of the U.S. Coast Guard. 

Among the departments represented were: the Irvington Fire Department, The Tarrytown Fire Department, The Hastings Fire Department, Mt. Pleasant Police, The Croton-on-Hudson Fire Department, the Verplank Fire Department, the South Salem Fire Department, The Bedford Fire Department, the Montrose Fire Department, and others.

Watch the video above to learn more about the training.
