Elite Coast Guard Team Keeps Bay Secure During Fleet Week

The big crowds that gather for Fleet Week in San Francisco also bring security concerns. On Friday KPIX 5 got a behind-the-scenes look at how a U.S. Coast Guard unit helped keep the Parade of Ships safe.

During Fleet Week, there’s a lot of ships and a lot of planes to see. But there is also another highly trained specialized military unit that hopes you do not see them.

By special invitation, KPIX cameras got an exclusive and rare visit with the Coast Guard’s elite Maritime Security Response Team, known as the MSRT. They are quietly monitoring fleet week, watching to make sure everyone stays safe.
