The Barbados Coast Guard Reserve (BCGR) hosted a Camp Closing Ceremony and Employers’ Meet and Greet function at the end of its Annual Training Camp 2018. The event was held on Saturday 21 July at the HMBS PELICAN Spring Garden base.

The event provided insight to employers and family of certain aspects of the training and the skillsets their staff and loved ones are exposed to when they are released from their primary employment duties to attend BCGR’s camps and parades.

Additionally, this ceremony provided visual and practical demonstrations as to how BCGR execute their roles and responsibilities as Coast Guard Officers on land or at sea. It fosters an opportunity for interaction and networking amongst the employers and the Barbados Defence Force and Coast Guard management teams.

The displays showcased highlighted specific skills in weapon handling, firefighting, recovery, vessel interdiction and operational recovery.
