The United States Coast Guard continues its push to Web 2.o as a means of sharing information with the general public with the launch of a new blog: Coast Guard Sector Los Angeles – Long Beach Blog. Sector LA – LB is responsible for Coast Guard operations, missions, functions, and responsibilities from (our place of residence and the beautiful) Morro Bay California south to Dana Point California. In their official launch yesterday, they tell us:
Welcome to this first official post on the Coast Guard Sector Los Angeles – Long Beach Blog. We created this site as a forum to exchange information with you about the missions we, as Coast Guard Guardians, perform on a daily basis.
We are responsible for all Coast Guard operations from The San Luis Obispo/Monterey County Line south to the San Diego/Orange County line. This area of responsibility covers an impressive 64,000 square miles of ocean and 320 miles of shoreline.
Together, we deliver multi-mission services in search and rescue, maritime safety and security, environmental protection, maritime law enforcement and aids to navigation. We will use this blog to keep you informed about what we are doing here at Sector Los Angeles – Long Beach, but we would also like your feedback. Please send us your ideas for content and share your thoughts. Protecting the waters here in Southern California is a team effort and you are all part of that team.
So from the gCaptain team, welcome aboard and we look forward to following as it progresses! Also be sure to subscibe to their feed HERE
