                                           Who We Are

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.  We conduct safety patrols on local waterways, assist the Coast Guard with homeland security duties, teach boating safety classes, conduct free vessel safety checks for the public, as well as many other activities.  The Auxiliary has members in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa and Guam.

                                              Our Vision

 As a component of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Coast Guard, and a servant of the public, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, in its role as the designated National Recreational Boating Safety Coordinator, is a leader in improving the boating experience of the maritime public.  We are an organization noted for working in partnership with all stakeholders within the waterways activity spectrum and across all modes of transporation to reach consensus solutions. We measure our success by our customer satisfaction, and our customers' needs help define our workload and priorities.
