Public Affairs as used by the United States Coast Guard and the United States Coast Guard

Auxiliary is a proactive effort to provide factual and truthful information about Coast
Guard Activities and/or Auxiliary activities to the public using available print and
electronic media to generate a generally favorable impression of the service to the
public. Thus, these pages will reflect the efforts of the Department of Public Affairs to promote the Auxiliary to the general public and the boating public in particular.

We hope you will find them interesting and informative.


5th Coast Guard District Outreach Fulfillment Center

Outreach LogoThe Fifth Coast Guard District Outreach Fulfillment Center (D5 OFC) objective is to raise awareness for the importance of recreational boating safety and partner with citizens everywhere through America’s Waterway Watch to improve the boating experience of the maritime public. We also strive to highlight the Coast Guard Auxiliary, America's premier volunteer life savers and the many opportunities available through membership. Working in partnership with all stakeholders within the waterways activity spectrum we are committed to delivering professional, high quality displays and exhibits that increase visibility in a wide range of public venues, elementary school safety fairs, boater education classes, vessel safety check stations, boat shows, conferences, seminars, television spots, national safe boating week activities and many other related safety opportunities with our boating safety partners. We measure our success by delivering excellent outreach support for participants of outreach opportunities throughout our seven state mid-Atlantic area of responsibility.

Members of the U.S. Coast Guard, Coast Guard Auxiliary, U.S. Power Squadrons, Boating Law Administrators and their staffs within the seven state region (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, District of Columbia, Virginia and North Carolina) comprising the Fifth Coast Guard District and other recreational boating stakeholders are eligible to request and use D5 OFC displays.  IMPORTANT - all OFC services are conducted through the web site portal only. Requests for OFC services are not available via FAX or telephone. Customers may monitor shipments using the tracking number provided by the selected courier service; the tracking number will be delivered to the requesting email address. Additionally, each order is issued an OFC request number that links it to the user’s online request and internal inventory controls.
