SEOUL, Jan. 22 (Yonhap) -- The Navy's Sea Salvage and Rescue Unit has kicked off its annual wintertime training as part of efforts to maintain full operational readiness, the military said Friday.

Around 50 members of the special unit launched the three-day training at the southern port of Jinhae on Wednesday, which includes drills to hone skills for underwater search operations and rubber boat pedaling, according to the Navy.

"With antivirus measures in place, we conducted the training to cultivate our service members' physical and mental capabilities to carry out rescue operations under any circumstances," it said in a release.
