Lava Rescue 2014

Lava Rescue conducted a first-ever mission that only the AKANG C-17 Globemaster III aircraft perform—PJs and two SAR watercraft were dropped from the aircraft over water, simulating a long-range SAR mission. Training exercises included search and rescue operations performed at sea during the day, and additional SAR training after dark with night-vision equipment. For one of the scenarios, “survivors” were pre-placed about five miles off of the coast of Oahu, with 212th RQS Guardian Angel pararescuemen in place on a water craft, and additional PJs in the 210th RQS HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter to practice exiting the helo, rescuing survivors, and being hoisted back onto the aircraft.
