U.S. Coast Guard Group/Air Station Humboldt Bay, Calif., teamed up Wednesday with more than 24 state, local and industry partners to conduct the largest full-scale mass rescue exercise in regional history.

Victim actors were rescued from the water in a simulated crash in Samoa Channel near Arcata Bay, transported to a land triage site and moved to St. Joseph's, Mad River and Redwood Memorial hospitals for treatment. The American Red Cross set up a family reception center during the exercise.
