Message from The Director:


As I take the helm I am humbled and honored to be appointed Director of the Incident Management & Preparedness Directorate. The mission is of utmost importance to the Coast Guard and the Nation. The Directorate is tasked with ensuring a world class Coast Guard Auxiliary Incident Management Response while maintaining Preparedness through a highly trained, professional, and ready all volunteer workforce.

The term “Team Coast Guard” has never been more relevant. The vision of the Directorate is to ensure Auxiliary personnel at the Sector, District, and National level are fully qualified under the Incident Command System for assignment as Type 1 Section Chiefs, Type 3 Team Leaders and other relevant designations within the Unified Command hierarchy. Auxiliary personnel holding the appropriate credentials become invaluable to the U.S. Coast Guard during national incidents requiring surge staffing for a coordinated and competent response. In addition, Auxiliary personnel holding relevant qualifications in Coast Guard missions and disciplines are critical for surge staffing events in backfilling active-duty billets at the deck plate level.

The Q Directorate leads the development, maintenance and delivery of Incident Management & Preparedness professional competencies for U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary specialized teams and individuals. Our efforts focus on domestic national response to incidents and events that require a coordinated and sustained response alongside active-duty and Reserve Coast Guard forces along with national, state, and tribal partners. In coordination with Coast Guard Headquarters we integrate established doctrine, policy, and guidelines for Coast Guard Auxiliary response operations under the National Response Framework (NRF) while building upon the established National Response System.

Our strategy is to fully implement the Incident Management programs and provide alignment with the active duty forces of the U.S. Coast Guard while defining and providing appropriate qualification standards pertaining to Incident Command Systems and Contingency Planning and Force Readiness support.

We must, as an organization, provide the tools, resources, and trained personnel to meet the objectives of Contingency Preparedness & Auxiliary Force Readiness to competently respond, when called upon, during any domestic national disaster.
