Marine Safety Programming

360 North is teaming up with the Alaska Marine Safety Education Association to bring informative marine safety television programs to viewers around Alaska.

Since its founding in 1985, AMSEA has trained more than 800 instructors, 390 teachers and youth educators. Each year this network of instructors, supported by AMSEA with equipment and educational materials, provides cold water safety education to more than 10,000 school children, commercial fishermen, recreational boaters and government agency personnel. Since AMSEA's inception they have trained over 110,000 people.

360 North is excited to be able to provide some of the training and educational materials created by AMSEA for viewers throughout the state. Programs about marine safety that will be in the upcoming fall schedule are:

•It Could Have Been Prevented
•Fishing Vessel Stability
•A Matter of Survival
•Rescues at Sea
•Beating the Odds
•When Seconds Count

This is just one example of the effort 360 North is taking toward successful partnering with organizations and associations throughout the state to bring educational and instructional programming to our viewers.
