Rescue-ready Upgrades

The Crescent City Jetty is finally undergoing a long-planned upgrade that aims to make search and rescue operations safer and more efficient.

Fourteen volunteer search and rescue members were out on the jetty on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. drilling concrete and repainting markers — the first step in an upgrade that’s been in the making for more than a year.

“It went very smoothly,” search and rescue coordinator Terry McNamara said. “No hangups at all, just a longer day than I thought it would be.”
