NEMESIS 2015 exercise gets underway

The first phase of the search and Rescue (SAR) exercise NEMESIS 2015 was carried out on Tuesday with the participation of personnel from Cyprus, Greece, Israel and the USA.

The exercise, which will take place on July 1, involving air and naval units, seeks to develop effective cooperation between the Joint Rescue Coordination Center (JRCC) Larnaca and neighbouring states in responding to emergency situations on ships and oil rigs as well as other humanitarian operations in the Eastern Mediterranean.

The first phase entailed a tabletop exercise involving counter terrorist attacks on ships and oil rigs, SAR operations, and sea pollution inside the island’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and the wider region.
