Boating Safety Tip of the Day
Wear a Life Jacket

Wear a life jacket also known as a PFD or Personal Flotation Device.  The life jacket floats, you don’t. A life jacket will save your life. There is no reason not to wear one.

What’s New:

  • E-
    The new and E-Forms have been pulled because they were posted to send .pdf forms and there are so many versions of Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat out there among the Auxiliary but not all versions of Reader and Acrobat will send/open the forms. Some readers were sending blank forms. Until the problem is resolved, the E-Forms will not be available. We will do everything possible to get them back as soon as the problem is resolved. Please be patient with us. Thank you. Marilyn

The latest from What’s New: # Usage of the Optional Member Activity Worksheet, Page 2

The new 7029 does not require both pages to be submitted. The optional worksheet, page 2, is available for to use as an aid to tracking their hours on a daily basis if they do not keep a daily date book record. The optional worksheet, page 2, can be submitted in place of page 1. The IS Officer may request on occasional submission of the optional worksheet in order to ensure the accuracy of hours and categories being submitted. It would be a beneficial strategy to submit the optional worksheet with page 1 for the initial usage of 7029.

  • A foggy day in Southern Maryland. Good morning shipmates.
  • Wear it!  News media ask the boaters you photograph why they don't. Start the discussion and save a life.
  • Our cold-water survival training was ultimately made possible by the Guardians of  U S Coast Guard Station Annapolis.  Two Guardians hauled each of us onto the deck of a fast boat.  During the training they made sure we were safe.  I am so proud to serve with these men and women. Each one is an outstanding professional.  Thank you Station Annapolis.
  • Once a crew is in the water survival and staying together is key. Chaining together as they do here the crew shares warmth and prolongs life.
  • A face that could be your next door neighbor. Coast Guard Auxiliary members from three Maryland flotillas took their annual cold-water training at Coast Guard Station Annapolis. Bill Smith from the Drum Point Flotilla reflects the serious of his training in his expression. Bill is not new to cold water.
  • To. feller and Bill Smith, Coast Guard Auxiliary, arrive at Coast Guard Station Annapolis for cold-water training.
  • A two-minute lesson that covered finger dexterity after cold water immersion. We placed a hand in cold water while the instructor spoke for two minutes. One we removed our hands we had to pick up the coin on the table. Not as easy as if looks. Try this only with an expert present.
  • Shawn Moore, Auxiliarist was our cold-water instructor.
  • Ray Feller, Auxiliarist  dons his dry suit. The suit provides significant protection in cold water. Having the suit alone is not enough. Knowing how the human body reacts to sudden immersion was the classroom session of our training today.
  • These volunteers attending cold-water survival training today could be your neighbors. Flotillas from Solomons Island to Annapolis were represented today.  Guardians made sure our training was safe. Another reason why I love to say Guardians rock!
