Marine Safety and Environmental Protection


As an integral part of Team Coast Guard the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is integral to supporting U.S. Coast Guard Missions.

The USCG Auxiliary's Prevention Department is responsible for the planning and administration of Auxiliary programs to support and augment the United States Coast Guard's Prevention Directorate. As such, we assist and augment the Coast Guard's vital role as the nation's guardian agency ensuring the safety and environmental protection of our nation's precious waterway resources. As America's Volunteer Guardians, we are committed to be dedicated, vigilant and ready to engage this mission on behalf of our fellow citizens.

The Department oversees two major Auxiliary programs - Navigation Systems and Marine Safety.

  • Foreign Flagged Vessels
  • Domestic Vessels (i.e. T-Boat, K-Boat, passenger, cargo, tanker)

Uninspected Vessel Activities

  • Uninspected Passenger Vessels (i.e. fishing guides, sailing schools, sightseeing tours)

Please Note: Because of the diversity and breadth of the programs overseen by the Prevention Department, and the diversity of those programs which are both Direct Augmentation of Coast Guard Programs and are Auxiliary programs exclusively, this site is a portal to sites dedicated exclusively to specific programs. Currently, they may not link back to this page. Please bookmark this page as those sites may not link back to this portal to return here.
