Welcome to the Division 10, District 13 Web Site

Welcome to Division 10 of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary’s 13th District.

 Division 10’s area of responsibility is the entire beautiful State of Montana and currently consists of 4 Active Flotillas located in the following Montana Cities:

Billings, MT            Billings, Montana 

Great Falls, MT      Great Falls, Montana

Helena, MT      Helena, Montana

Kalispell, MT    Kalispell, Montana

 Montana is well known for Outdoor Recreational Activities and Boating is a big part of that. Montana contains over 2,000 Lakes and 78 Rivers many of which are regularly used for Recreational Boating and Fishing. Montana has 147,046 Square Miles of area with 545 Miles of International Border.

 It is Division 10’s responsibility to 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, as well as many other activities related to recreational boating safety.

As in many other inland portions of the country, where the majority of U.S. recreational boating occurs on lakes and rivers, the Auxiliary is the sole Coast Guard presence!

 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 willing to put in the time and training. 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. No matter where you live, there is a flotilla near you. Find the unit nearest your Zip Code by clicking on "Units" at the top of this page.
