Air Station Kodiak Sets Up Cold Bay Location

Jay Barrett/KMXT
Air Station Kodiak has moved one of its MH-60 Jayhawk helicopters to Cold Bay in anticipation of the winter fisheries in the Bering Sea. The crew arrived on Monday, and will rotate with relief crews from Kodiak.
An MH-65 Dolphin helicopter will also be on patrol from aboard a cutter during the winter as well.
Air Station Kodiak uses the forward locations to cut down response times to mariners in distress. In the summer, Jayhawk crews are deployed to Cordova and Arctic region.
