Time is running out on the U.S. Coast Guard’s “Best Video of the Year Contest.” But even if you’re not interested in voting on the 11 rescue videos the Coast Guard has posted on You Tube, simply watching them can provide helpful pointers on rescue and security techniques.
The Coast Guard has been running its rescue video contest for the past several years, aimed at recognizing the most intrepid rescue teams of the year. There’s gripping video here – like a flood rescue recorded from a helicopter.
Only two days remain – until January 8 – actually to vote on the videos. But they, or others like them, will probably remain on You Tube and can be helpful for training purposes.
