    From what I have read on the internet if you are stationed at a duty station instead of a cutter you can be put on search and rescue duty.

    What are the requirements and what are my chances of getting to do this.
    Is this a permanent shift for as long as I want it or is this rotated among the rest of the personnel at the duty station.

    I would really love to have this shift because it sounds like a great shift. Anyone who has worked this or is currently working this what are the good and bad things about this shift?

    Thanks,

    Josh

    Search and rescue is the backbone of the Coast Guard, and one of just MANY important responsibilities. SAR can occur both from a shore station and Coast Guard Cutters at sea. EXPECT to be assigned to a Cutter during your Coast Guard Career. The CG is a seagoing service. Everyone is expected to understand that they probably will spend a large amount of time at sea during their career. There are no "shore people" and "Cutter people" in the Coast Guard, everyone can and will go underway on a Cutter in most cases. Very few ratings spend their whole career on land. If you are interested in Search and rescue, check out the BM and MK ratings.

    Best wishes,
