MULTIMEDIA: Nanaimo Search and Rescue training exercise

Nanaimo Search and Rescue were among the groups taking part in a training exercise at the Nanaimo Lakes area.

A fictional plane crash scenario was part of the exercise.

Search and rescue volunteers are live tweeting. Follow along here.

Again, this is a training scenario, not an actual rescue effort.
