Location

You could go anywhere! Every state has the Coast Guard. Some places are better than others. I personally would love to be sent to Alaska.

Rescue Swimmer

You have to go through major training. A graduating RS has to have the flexibility, strength, endurance, and equipment knowledge to function for 30 minutes in heavy seas. You have to be brave enough to free fall from a helicopter into dangerous seas.
