On February 13, 2003, DART Rescue conducted an 8-hour shore construction and testing practice at its Collapse Structure Rescue training facility. The impromptu theme of the day was "We're proud to be Americans". All 28 members present were issued American Flag bandanas.
In the morning, the group was broken up into four squads. There was one cutting squad and three shore construction squads. Three FEMA Horizontal Class III shores were constructed. In the afternoon, a FEMA Horizontal Class III Shore and a FEMA Horizontal Class III Offset Shore were constructed and tested. See pictures and captions for additional information.
