ST. MARYS, Ga. (AP) - The Coast Guard and Navy plan to conduct a full-scale maritime exercise in the Intracoastal Waterway.

The Coast Guard says the exercise is known as Resolute Guardian. It is set to run from about 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday. It will be held near Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay and continuing south to the Saint Marys River entrance.

The exercise will include small boat maneuvers, blank gunfire and distress signal training.

The Coast Guard is advising local boaters and community members that there will be a 500-yard moving safety zone around the vessels involved. There are no waterway closures or restrictions planned.
