Welcome to the Response Web Site


Response Directorate

The Response Directorate is responsible for the Auxiliary programs that support members and assets participating in Surface, Aviation, and Telecommunication missions, on behalf of the US Coast Guard. Toward that goal, the Response Directorate will identify the response needs of the Coast Guard, during normal and accelerated operational tempos, and develop relevant competencies to provide a safe, robust and capable volunteer contingent as a part of Coast Guard Forces.  With oversight provided by the Auxiliary National Executive Committee (NEXCOM) and working closely with the Chief Director’s Office, and other Coast Guard Headquarters Units, we craft standards for staffing, training, and equipping our people, and maintaining our assets so that they are fully capable to meet mission requirements.

As a directorate, we continue to be guided by the Coast Guard Core Values of Honor, Respect, and Devotion to Duty, the Coast Guard Auxiliary Strategic Plan, and our Directorate’s bywords to insure that our programs are S.A.F.E.(“Safe, Adaptable, Fun, and Effective”).
