Welcome to Super Division 8
 
We call ourselves "Super 8" A division of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary comprised of volunteers from Kennewick, Spokane, Spokane Valley and Yakima in Washington and Coeur d' Alene, Lewiston and Sandpoint in Idaho.

We are proud of our missions and invite you to join us in becoming a part of Team Coast Guard. Auxiliarist's assist the Coast Guard in non-law enforcement programs and our local county agencies such as patrolling our magnificent waterways, search and rescue, waterway watch and environmental protection. We verify aids to navigation along our rivers and lakes and are an integral part of Homeland Security. Teaching public education classes, conducting vessel safety checks, promoting Coast Guard Academy introduction programs for youth as well as participation in parades and standing watch at safety booths confirms our dedication to what we consider of most importance.
 
If only one life is saved by our efforts, we have done our job!

The Coast Guard’s philosophy is to be SEMPER PARATUS (ALWAYS READY) against all threats and all hazards. The Coast Guard Auxiliary is an integral part of that philosophy and the Coast Guard Forces.
