Join the Auxiliary
BE PART OF THE ACTION AND HELP SAVE LIVES -- Since the recreational boating population in the United States is growing rapidly, the Coast Guard Auxiliary needs a few good men and women like you. As an Auxiliarist, you will have the opportunity to select and participate in one or more of the Auxiliary's major programs. If you feel strongly about the rewards you can get from serving your community, the Coast Guard Auxiliary is the right place for you! Whether through on-water Operations, the Auxiliary's Public Education Program, Courtesy Examination Program, Radio Watchstander, Coast Guard Recruiting, Marine Environmental Protection or Coast Guard Administration and much more, we may offer just what you want.
YOUR SKILLS -- The
Auxiliary and the Coast Guard provide specialized training on all aspects of
boating, as well as leadership and administration. Auxiliarists receive
valuable training in seamanship and related skills, and enjoy the sense of
confidence of knowing that they are better and safer boaters.
THE COAST GUARD --
Auxiliarists provide direct operational and administrative support to many local
Coast Guard units. You can wear the Coast Guard Auxiliary uniform and
become part of Team Coast Guard. When you qualify through training, you
can take part in Search and Rescue operations, stand radio watch at the Coast
Guard Station, work with the Marine Safety Office on pollution matters or even
maintain perimeters in the Macy's Fireworks. Or be part of the Javits
Center' annual boat show. And when Fleet Week comes to New York each year,
auxiliarists are first to be asked to assist.
TO YOUR COMMUNITY--
Auxiliarists aren't paid with money, but with satisfaction. We furnish and
maintain our own equipment and can choose to participate at a level tailored to
our individual capabilities. We provide boating safety classes for youth
and adults and examine recreational vessel for safety equipment to ensure that
our neighbors will be safe on the waterways. We are active in maintaining
our Homeland Security.

FUN AND FELLOWSHIP -- In all activities, enjoy
fellowship -- the good company of other Auxiliarists at meetings and training
sessions, on patrols and other missions, and at ceremonies and social events.
One of the Auxiliary's trademarks is good old-fashioned hospitality.
Friends, neighbors and interested members of the public are always welcome to
attend one of our flotilla meetings. In addition, dedication to boating
safety provides the atmosphere for getting together to swap boating experiences
and participate in cruises and rendezvous. You'll find a special
camaraderie among Auxiliarists that's hard to beat. There's time to relax
and have fun at Auxiliary outings, training sessions, patrols, VEs, classes, and
conferences. Auxiliarists make lasting, meaningful friendships. Knowing
that you belong to a special group of people and directly participate in helping
save lives gives your Auxiliary membership a special meaning.
Flotilla 11-02 welcomes new members interested in Operations, Public Education, or other Auxiliary programs. For more information or if you have any questions about the Auxiliary please contact our Flotilla Commander, Victor Kleinman.
