MILFORD FLOTILLA 24-3 USCG AUXILIARY
With added responsibilities, the Milford
unit of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary
is welcoming new members to their flotilla.
The Milford organization actively supports
Coast Guard Station New Haven using their
31’ vessel for safety patrols and
search and rescue operations on Long Island
Sound. The group also provides free vessel
examinations and offers public education
classes with Connecticut Safe Boating Certificates
issued to those who successfully graduate.
The USCG Auxiliary is a non-military, non-law
enforcement volunteer group. Members must
be U.S. citizens, male or female, and over
the age of 17. Although helpful, boating
experience is not mandatory as members are
trained using Coast Guard provided materials.
In addition to water related operations,
members may receive training as instructors,
inspectors, or support personnel such as
radio operators and clerical workers.
Meetings are held at 8:00 p.m. on the first
Tuesday of every month at 1 Helwig
Street, Milford. Those interested in joining
are requested to arrive at 7:30 p.m. For
more information please contact Flotilla243
or call 203-874-0200.
