About Our Mission:

The Coast Guard Auxiliary was established by Congress in 1939 and is a vital part of the Coast Guard, contributing over 2 million hours a year to Coast Guard Missions.  

These missions include sea and air patrols for Safety, Security, Pollution and Response, and integrated participation for mass casualty and other disasters. Our mission also includes Recreational Boating Safety with classroom education programs, as well as free vessel safety exams and workshops.  

We offer training  to accomplish all the above, and our training and qualifications in many cases equals that of active duty Coast Guard members. In fact, members are eligible to attend some of the same training that regular Coast Guard receives at government expense.
