    Flotilla 6-7 is now Flotilla 15-10

    Northern Region (5NR) has just completed a reorganization which has resulted in a change to our Flotilla nomenclature and reporting. Formerly we were Penn-Jersey Division 6 Flotilla 7 5NR. We are now Northern Lakes Division 15 Flotilla 10 5NR.

    We expect to continue to support the Lake Hopatcong community as we have in the past and will provide more info and details as we evolve into our new name and reporting structure.

    About the Coast Guard Auxiliary...

    The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is the uniformed, all-volunteer component of the United States Coast Guard. The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary was established by Congress in June, 1939, to assist the Coast Guard in promoting boating safety. It is composed of nearly 35,000 members from all walks of life who are drawn together by their love of the water and a willingness to serve other boaters. Its members receive special training so that they may be a functional part of Team Coast Guard.  We have members and units in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and Guam.

    Auxiliarists assist the Coast Guard in non-law-enforcement programs such as public education, safety patrols, search and rescue, marine environmental protection, and Coast Guard Academy introduction programs for youth. Auxiliary members volunteer approximately two million hours annually to benefit other boaters and their families. But the Coast Guard Auxiliary is more than recreational boating safety.  We regularly serve alongside our active-duty shipmates serving as communications watch standers, uninspected passenger vessel inspectors, training resources;for air and sea operations, numerous duties related to environmental protection and homeland security, and even as chefs! In fact, there are nearly two dozen qualifications open to Auxiliarists willing to put in the time and training. Collectively, Auxiliarists volunteer over 4.5 million hours per year and complete nearly 500,000 missions – a true force multiplier for the Coast Guard!

    The Coast Guard Auxiliary Missions have come to be known as the Four Cornerstones of the Auxiliary
    Four Cornerstones of the Auxiliary

    As you can see, there is a lot we are involved in…

    Membership in the Auxiliary is open to persons 17 years of age and older. We are organized into 16 districts nationwide, comprised of 171 divisions with approximately 980 flotillas. No matter where you live, there is a flotilla near you.  If you would like to join us as a member of Team Coast Guard, we welcome you!     WE NEED YOU!
