The Coast Guard flew into town last Friday to show off some rescue maneuvers to a crowd of curious onlookers. They dropped swimmers into the water, between City Dock and the Nolan Center, and demonstrated how to rescue them with a rope as well as a basket. The Coast Guard also trained with The Wrangell Fire Department, search and rescue, and Alaska Crossings on how to raise and lower a basket up to a hovering helicopter. Afterwards, they landed on the dock to give the public a chance to talk with the pilots and rescuers, and get a closer look at the helicopter.
