US Coast Guard Auxiliary Boater Safety Course Set

The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, Flotilla 24 Oswego, is offering a Boating Safely class on May 7 at the Sandy Pond Sportsman Association, 3201 County Route 15, Pulaski from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Successful completion of this class will result in a Boating Safety Certificate.

The cost is $35 and pre-registration is required by calling 315-598-7854.

The US Coast Guard Auxiliary is composed of volunteers who support the Coast Guard in all of its varied missions, except military and law enforcement.

These men and women can be found on the nation’s waterways and in the air performing Maritime Domain Awareness and safety patrols, in classrooms teaching boater safety, and on the docks performing vessel safety checks.

We also do watch standing at our local Coast Guard Station Oswego.

The United States Coast Guard was founded in 1939 by an act of Congress as the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve and re-designated as the Auxiliary in 1942.

Each year the Coast Guard assists over 11,000 boaters, saves over 500 lives, and educates more than 500,000 students.

Anyone wanting more information about the auxiliary please call 598-7854.

We meet the second Monday of the month at Station Oswego.
