The Resolve Maritime Academy hosted a day of maritime safety training exercises and competitive activities as part of the 13th Damage Control Olympics.
 
Teams consisting of sailors and damage control service men and women competed against one another in a series of hands-on training exercises and shipboard emergency response scenarios, including interaction with live fire, smoke filled environments and a flooded ship chamber.
 
Resolve Maritime Academy said it developed the Damage Control Olympics to recreate real-life emergencies that a sailor could experience onboard a vessel at sea and gain experience in a fast-paced, competitive environment. 
 
This year’s top three teams were USS Cole, USCG Richard Etheridge and USS Wasp, respectively.
