Volunteer for the U.S. Coast Guard
Citizen’s Action Network
Examples of Coast Guard equipment in action in Puget Sound
Become a Citizen’s Action Network member and help the U.S. Coast Guard save lives and property, prevent oil spills, and protect wildlife, all from the comfort of home.
The Northwest has an extensive amount of waterways and communities to protect. The U.S. Coast Guard needs dependable and proactive volunteers to aid in keeping our waters safe and clean.
This program allows residents living near waterways to become associated with the Coast Guard and help conduct its missions.
The Coast Guard will call on Citizen’s Action Network members to help investigate cases such as rescue missions and pollution incidents, which puts volunteers right in the heart of the action.
The only requirements for participating are having access to a phone and a marine view from your home.

The complexity of the Thirteenth District's waterways coupled with its limited search and rescue resources make the Citizen’s Action Network highly valuable program.
