DA NANG, Vietnam (July 21, 2016) U.S. Navy Aviation Structural Mechanic 2nd Class Micah Rupp, center, guides Vietnamese lifeguards in the correct procedures for moving a patient during a lifeguard community relations event held at Da Nang beach front as part of Pacific Partnership 2016. Community relation events bring together the local community and Pacific Partnership personnel and are an essential component of the mission that allow for direct engagement. Partner nations are working side-by-side with local organizations to conduct cooperative health engagements, community relation events and subject matter expert exchanges to better prepare for natural disaster or crisis.
