Coast Guard takes part in multi-agency drill

 SEATTLE – The Coast Guard took part in the Asymmetric Warfare Initiative (AWI) exercise today at Integrated Support Command (ISC) Seattle and Pier 90.

Station Seattle and the Coast Guard Cutter Henry Blake simulated migrant interdiction operations while ISC Seattle played host to a simulated protest.

The AWI series of exercises held in the Pacific Northwest builds on lessons learned from previous AWI exercises. This exercise series is described as “CAW Sponsored – Participant Owned” because it is designed by the exercise participants to meet their exercise goals and objectives.

The exercise is structured around multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional interaction among Maritime regions within Washington, Alaska and Canada. This exercise is a combination of tabletop exercises and full scale exercises with live situations and computer simulation supported events. The live and computer simulated events focus on the Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTP) utilized in response to a terrorist attack. The transition from the response activities to recovering from the effects of the events are conducted in a separate tabletop exercise settings.
