Reenactment of the Beach Apparatus Rescue Drill
Time: 2:00 PM
Local Re-enactors will perform the Beach Apparatus Drill. Widely known for its rich history of saving souls in peril from the sea, the Chicamacomico Lifesaving Station, for many years, conducted a Reenactment of the beach apparatus rescue drill. The drill was recognized as an integrel part of the Lifesaving Service and early Coast Guard along our shores. We are pleased to again offer the opportunity for the public to witness this life saving technique as it was conducted from the Civil War until the 1950's.
