US Coast Guard, Navy to team up for maritime exercise

U.S. Coast Guard and Navy personnel are scheduled to conduct a maritime exercise September 28 in the vicinity of Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, continuing south to the Saint Mary’s River entrance.

The exercise, named Resolute Guardian, will consist of small boat maneuvers, blank gunfire and distress signal training.

Local mariners and members of the surrounding community are advised there will be a 500-yard moving safety zone around all exercise vessels to ensure boaters maintain a safe distance from the exercise.

Members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary will be conducting safety patrols as well as passing out informational flyers at local marinas to inform boaters of the exercise, the coast guard said.
