Extreme Rescue

Around the world men and women are on alert. When a cry for help is received, they respond and are willing to give their lives so that others may live. From raging summer forest fires to freezing mountain storms and deep into the Arctic ocean’s polar night we bring you a story about rescuers working in the worst conditions our natural world has to offer: the fire, ice and the sea.
