Welcome to the Flotilla 12-3, District 5SR Web Site

 Who We Are!

U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 12-3 in Crisfield, Maryland, is a uniformed, all-volunteer component of the United States Coast Guard. Made up of civilian volunteers like you from the local community,  we serve the needs of the boating public and support the Coast Guard’s missions in the areas of maritime patrols, public education, vessel safety checks, marine and recreational boating safety.

Auxiliary members conduct safety patrols on local waterways, assist in Search and Rescue, teach boating safety classes, conduct free vessel safety checks for the public, provide boating safety literature to dealers, help protect the marine environment, as well as many other activities related to recreational boating safety. Photos of our "Suddenly-in-Command" Course for "First Mates" when the skipper becomes incapacitated are below. Fifteen "Crisfielders" participated.

               USCG Auxiliary Vessel Exams are FREE.

Call Linda Busick at (443) 235-4348 to arrange for a convenient time in the Crisfield Area.

But the Auxiliary is more than recreational boating safety.  We regularly serve alongside our active-duty shipmates serving as communications watchstanders, uninspected passenger vessel inspectors, training resources for air and sea operations, numerous duties related to environmental protection and homeland security, and even as chefs! In fact, there are nearly two dozen "qualifications" open to Auxiliarists. Collectively, Auxiliarists volunteer over 4.5 million hours per year and complete nearly 500,000 missions – a true force multiplier for the Coast Guard!

Membership in the Auxiliary is open to persons 17 years of age and older. We are organized into 16 districts nationwide, comprised of 171 divisions with approximately 980 flotillas.  We hope you'll come to one of our meetings or call us.
