Thousands of people work and play on the
water every day. There’s all kinds of emergencies that can happen at sea, you know,
people sometimes get sick, injured, need emergency medical care, boats capsize, run
aground, sink, sometimes people even fall overboard. When an emergency happens at
sea the Coast Guard is called. They have
boats, helicopters, even jet planes, and they’re always practicing and training
so they can respond to any emergency at sea.
