SLO Co. FD Water Rescue Apparatus

Today while visiting the classic California beach town of Cayucos I happened by a training exercise involving three of San Luis Obispo County FD's rescue watercraft. This was the middle edition of three consecutive days of such training at three different sites along the coast of San Luis Obispo County. This particular training exercise was also going to be partly a night-time operations exercise this evening through midnight. This was planned well in advance and had nothing to do with the recent shark incidents along the coast over the past week and/or the water rescue of a near-fatal hypothermia victim a short distance up the coast during the same period.
