I had great luck today, despite some early glitches, and caught both Marine 80 and Rescue 1 plus a handful of other units! For some reason Pulse Point didn’t notify me about this one, and Twitter was over ten minutes late, so I missed most of the responding units.

Despite that, I was still able to catch Marine 80, which is a super rare unit! I’ve only seen them once before and it was a distant view, so this was way better. I also got Rescue 1, which is always a joy to see.

This call was for an electrical fire onboard a docked sailboat, which was quickly knocked down. Marine 1, which usually responds to boat emergencies, must have been out of service today.

I haven’t gotten a new camera yet, and I don’t fully trust my current camera, so a few of these clips were filmed on both my camera and my phone.
