On April 2, 2014, Sea Star Line’s vessel El Faro and its employees participated in a joint training exercise at North Florida shipyards. The training exercise focused on evaluating agency procedures, communication plans and training programs to assure all agencies can respond in the most efficient way to emergency events and to mitigate risks and damage.

“The mock training exercise was an excellent opportunity to participate in and ensure that our local emergency agencies are prepared for emergency response events,” stated Jim Wagstaff, vice president of operations for Sea Star Line, LLC.

In addition to Sea Star Line, the emergency response training exercise participants included; the U.S. Coast Guard, the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the Jacksonville Port Authority, and the Jacksonville Maritime Transportation Exchange.
