Petty Officer 3rd Class Christopher Houvener, a marine science technician at the Marine Safety Detachment in Kodiak, Alaska, inspects survival suits with the captain of the 100-foot fishing vessel Pacific Storm during a commercial fishing vessel safety examination in Kodiak, Jan. 9, 2014. Survival or immersion suits are inspected thoroughly as they are a very important piece of equipment in the event of abandoning ship in the frigid waters of Alaska.
