VIDEO: It's time to sharpen up their skills, first responders trained for a real life situation in the water. Behind Martin State Airport in Baltimore County a group of 50 people conducted an airplane rescue. "This is not anything a school can teach you or you can learn to do in a book, you just have to get in the water in different conditions with different people,” said Brian Key, who is Corporal with the Maryland State Police. The Maritime Tactical Operations Group, MTOG, consisting of six teams, are practicing underwater recovery. These were the first responders on scene when the Key Bridge collapsed. "Baltimore County Police, my team, we actually put on the training so it's my team, Maryland State Police is here, PG County, Natural Resources Police, the State Fire Marshals and the Strike Team from the Coast Guard,” said Officer Derek Sennett, Marine Unit Officer with the Baltimore County Police Department.
