On May 10, 2005 our unit combined with others, establishing U. S. Coast Guard Sector Seattle. This is a significant strategic achievement that integrates command functions of Coast Guard Group Seattle, Vessel Traffic Service Puget Sound , and Marine Safety Office Puget Sound under one operational commander to more effectively manage the sweeping changes to the Coast Guard’s operational environment that resulted from the attacks of September 11, 2001.
On 30 July 2010, USCG Group Port Angeles and USCG Sector Seattle combined to become USCG Sector Puget Sound. The purspose of this merger is to bring the operational control of all Coast Guard resources located within the present Captain of the Port Puget Sound area of responsibility under one command for the execution of all Coast Guard missions. USCG Sector Puget Sound offices are located in the CDR Raymond J. Evans Shore Operations Building at Pier 36 in Seattle, WA. All VHF-FM and HF radio frequencies formerly guarded 24 hours a day by USCG Group Port Angeles and USCG Sector Seattle will now be monitored by USCG Sector Puget Sound.
