The Atlantic Area External Affairs division provides coordination and oversight of activities that involve customers and agencies, both foreign and domestic, which are external to the U.S. Coast Guard. The Division maintains an awareness of organizational issues, initiatives, and priorities through frequent alignment sessions with Division Chiefs and communication with Coast Guard Headquarters’ offices of Governmental, Public and International Affairs. We develop communications strategies and provide guidance that ensures consistent protocol and message. The Division's goal is to educate and inform the public through closely coordinated programmatic efforts within the Atlantic Area of Responsibility.
