The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
With nearly 27,000 members, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary actively provides safety patrols on area waterways and regularly meets with the boating public at marinas and in classrooms. We also directly assist the U.S. Coast Guard in non-law enforcement programs such as search and rescue, and marine environmental protection.
Flotilla 22 is based at the tip of Sandy Hook, NJ at the USCG Station. We operate over 12 surface facilities and have more than 50 active members supporting Station Sandy Hook in all aspects of Search & Rescue, Marine Safety, Environmental Protection, and Recreational Boating Safety.
As a member of our Flotilla we will provide you with hands-on training in the programs and activities that interest you. You can perform safety examinations of recreational boats, or crew on Search & Rescue patrols, and much more!
