Coast Guard Planning Training Mission Thursday

The United States Coast Guard, state and local agencies are coordinating a training exercise for a mass casualty incident in South County this week.

The scenario is a ferry vessel on fire with fifty people on board with various injuries.

The Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency says the exercise will take place on Thursday morning at North Beach in Narragansett.

A Coast Guard spokesman says it is ultimately geared to keeping people as safe as they can.
