When you’re lost or in trouble far from help, Alaska’s coordinated search and rescue agencies are ready to come to your aid. On the next “Talk of Alaska,” host Charles Wohlforth welcomes the searchers who stand ready when your locator beacon goes off or when your loved ones report you overdue. Your questions are welcome on this call-in, to find out how the search and rescue system works, and what you can do to make yourself easier to find.
