Coast Guard Alaska Series 1 & 2

Factual Entertainment & Reality / 20 x 60' / HD, Airline, DVD, Non-Theatric

Al Roker Entertainment for The Weather Channel

Coast Guard Alaska takes us into the lives of the men and women of the United States Coast Guard stationed in rugged Alaska. Watch them train and work in one of the harshest environments in the world conducting dangerous Search and Rescue missions (SARs). Ride along with the crew of a helicopter or speed along in a response boat, as they race to rescue victims from the freezing waters.

This exciting new series features intense rescue missions that closely follow the guardsmen from the moment they get the distress call to when they gear up and speed out to any given rescue site, often in conditions that would be considered daunting in an effort to save lives. We follow the men and women of the US Coast Guard and witness first hand their lives through unprecedented access that is brought to viewers through cameras placed inside and outside helicopters, cutters, and boats as our team flies, dives, and swims to rescue individuals. We also meet the new recruits who are trying to join the ranks of guardsmen and see what it takes to make the cut and take on the challenge of a highly dangerous job in one of the most extreme locations in America.
