Search and Rescue with the Coast Guard

May 24, 2018

US Coast Guard flight crews stationed on Cape Cod are at the ready 24 / 7 to respond to vessels in distress from New York City to the border of Canada. In this special broadcast, we talk with Coast Guard pilots, flight mechanics and rescue swimmers about their work and tag along on a helicopter training flight to see them in action. We also hear the story of a woman who was rescued 300 miles offshore by a Coast Guard Helicopter crew in Hurricane Grace.

 

Here is some footage of the training-in-action.
