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 7:00 p.m. on the first Tuesday of every month at 1 Helwig Street, Milford. Those interested in joining are requested to arrive early.  For more information please contact Flotilla243 or call 203-874-0200.
