Coast Guard Auxiliary Training to Help Hudson Valley Boaters

from Yolanda Robinson, Public Affairs Officer

Members of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary are “always ready”.

Auxiliarists from Verplank, Port Chester and Mamaroneck participated in a Team 
Coordination Training seminar last month at the Washington Irving Boat Club in Tarrytown. 

The Team Coordination Training or (TCT) is focused on the principle that improved decision-making through better leadership, preparation and attention to detail will result in highly skilled auxiliarists to help safeguard local waters this summer.

The training was lead by experienced Coxswain, Vessel Examiner and Coast Guard Auxiliary instructor, Lynn Glassman, District Staff Officer of Information Services, Verplank Flotilla 06-04.

“The Coast Guard Auxiliary is the volunteer arm of the US Coast Guard dedicated to safe boat operation.” stated Glassman. “TCT is a risk management process that will ensure safe and effective Coast Guard Auxiliary missions. It's a team approach that applies risk assessment tools to help identify risk exposure in order to make sound decisions to help to help secure local waterways.”

As the boating season gets underway, the US Coast Guard Auxiliary urges all boaters to take advantage of our boat safety classes in order to ensure proper operation on the waterways. 

Classes are available to the public at a flotilla near you.

The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary is the uniformed volunteer Component of the United States Coast Guard created by an Act of Congress in 1939. The Auxiliary supports the Coast Guard in nearly all of the service's mission.
