Welcome to the Ninth Coast Guard District

Cleveland, Ohio

The motto of the Ninth District is Guardians of the Great Lakes and we take our duty seriously. Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, we're responsible for all Coast Guard operations throughout the five Great Lakes, the Saint Lawrence Seaway and parts of the surrounding states including 6,700 miles of shoreline and 1,500 miles of the international border with Canada.  The 6,000 active duty, reserve, civilian and auxiliary men and women who make up the Ninth District deliver multi-mission services in search and rescue, maritime safety and security, environmental protection, maritime law enforcement, aids to navigation and icebreaking.
