May 7, 2015, CFB Trenton, Ont. - More than 70 personnel from 424 (Transport and Rescue) Squadron with their CC-130H Hercules aircraft and CH-146 Griffon helicopters, supported by more than 100 civilian search and rescue (SAR) partners, are conducting a SAR exercise called TIGEREX 2015 in the Barrie/Orillia, Ont. area from May 4 to 7, 2015.

Throughout the week, multiple simulated SAR scenarios are organized to put the skills of the SAR team to the test. This provides 424 Squadron's SAR crews, and the crews of partner agencies, invaluable interaction and exposure to how SAR operations are conducted and how they can better work together in responding to life-saving calls. The exercise will focus on boat and land SAR scenarios, medical exercises, local emergency response procedures, as well as night flares.

Supporting 424 Squadron in this exercise are: the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (Trenton), SAR Network Operations Communications Centre, 439 Squadron, 8 Air Communications and Control Squadron, Canadian Coast Guard, Civil Air SAR Association, United States Coast Guard, Ontario Provincial Police, and local fire hall and ambulance.
