On Wednesday 30th August, during her port visit to Djibouti, EU Naval Force warship ESPS Rayo conducted Local Maritime Capacity Building (LMCB) training in support of the Djiboutian Coast Guard.

The training began with a briefing on board ESPS Rayo for the Djiboutian Coast Guard personnel. This was followed by comprehensive training in fire fighting techniques, as well as the use of protective clothing used to safely fight a fire.

Those receiving the training showed great interest in both damage control techniques and equipment and at the end of the session expressed their appreciation and willingness to take part in other training opportunities to continue to develop their skills.

The combined training, both theoretical and practical, proved highly effective and serves to enhance the mutual trust and understanding between the European Union and regional maritime forces.
