Mission Statement

The varied and complex missions carried out each day by the men and women of Station San Francisco include but are not limited to, Search and Rescue, Homeland Security, Maritime Law Enforcement, Marine Environmental Protection, and Boating Safety. Station San Francisco is also deeply involved in community and public relations. Thousands of people young and old benefit from Station San Francisco's boating safety demonstrations at schools and public relations events. Our motto is "striving for excellence", and the positive attitude and strong work ethic of our diverse and talented crew brings us closer each day.
