SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diego's coast guard says it's ready, should a cruise ship get into trouble off of our coast.
Carnival, the parent company of the ship that sank, does have cruise liners that sail in and out of San Diego's port.
Back in November 2010 the cruise ship Splendor was crippled by a fire that disabled the ship south of San Diego.
Since then, the coast guard has learned from the rescue experience.
"Once a year, we meet with everybody, exercise it and then we debrief what worked, what didn't' work, how can we do this better?" Lt. Sean Groark of the U.S. Coast Guard said.
Rescuers say they have a plan, and they practice for emergencies, though the ocean is dynamic and can be unpredictable.
