SURFACE & AIR MISSIONS The mission of the Auxiliary operations unit is to provide operational, logistic, and training support to the appropriate Coast Guard programs. The operational use of Auxiliarists and their boats, aircraft, and radio stations is encouraged. Once an Auxiliarist offers his/her boat or aircraft for use as an Operational Facility, it must meet special requirements and have certain equipment on board. It also must be inspected and awarded an "Operational Facility Decal." The vessel is then given an official number by which it is identified.

Patrol 1

An Operational Surface Facility must have a qualified Coxswain and adequate number of qualified crew people available on board to receive official Coast Guard orders to commence patrol in their AOR (area of responsibility). Auxiliary Facilities and crew may perform many tasks except direct law enforcement. Several are listed here: perform harbor patrol, provide safety zones for regattas, and check aids to navigation. One of the most rewarding is search and rescue, when someone is in need of help.
