We are proposing to manage a robust and well-informed network of civilian volunteers living on or near all of the Thirteenth District’s waters; having a good view of the water here is essential. When needed, any Coast Guard unit with access to the D13 intranet, could identify a geographic-specific volunteer and call upon them to assist operations.
