Dove Review

“Coast Guard Alaska – Season 1” is a documentary about the amazing 350 men and women who are members of the Coast Guard rescue team. Their job is to rescue people in trouble. From a helicopter, a boat, an ice cutter or plane, they do their best to give those in trouble a positive outcome.

In this first season, they are stationed on Kodiak Island, Alaska, and Coast Guard Air Station Sitka. They are constantly training to be prepared for any situation. The Coast Guard missions are extremely urgent, and some are dangerous to them as well as the people they are there to rescue. This series shows how the Coast Guard has helped a hunter who has been shot, a boater who is injured, hunters who are lost in the wilderness, and people in many other life-threatening situations. These people do their duty with teamwork and give the people in trouble the same priority they would give to family.

The documentary also shows the many other ways these brave people interact with their local community besides save and rescue and how the community has shown their appreciation for their Coast Guard heroes.

We are very proud to award “Coast Guard Alaska – Season 1” with the Dove “Family-Approved Seal for 12-plus, due to some language and some intense situations.
