  4. Remember • Safety of all personnel: Auxiliary & the public is first and foremost • Risk Management principles are to be applied in mission planning and execution • Know your facility’s operational limits • Remember to “adapt, not adopt”. Local conditions will impact the execution of any mission! 2010 Operations Workshop Department of Response

  5. Remember Changes forCurrency Maintenance • You must log 12 hours underway • Crew & Coxswains • Coxswains can log their 12 hours as crew or coxswain • Attend a mandatory 1 hour TCT refresher • Must be completed by 31 December • If 5 year 8 hour TCT is required, the 1 hour TCT need not also be completed 2010 Operations Workshop Department of Response

  6. 2009 Changes forCurrency Maintenance - PWO • If you are coxswain qualified AND complete your 12 hours, you only need an additional 6 hours for PWO, which must be done on a PWC under orders • Which means: • QualificationAnnual Currency Requirement • PWO only                          12 hrs on PWC • Boat Crew + PWO             12 hrs on boats + 12 hrs on PWC • Cox’n + PWO                     12 hrs on boats + 6 hrs on PWC 2010 Operations Workshop Department of Response

Patrol Reminders • Remember that local CG Unit ball caps are NOT authorized while on patrols • Maritime Domain Awareness on all patrols - (we are the eyes and ears of the Coast Guard) • Correct signage on ALL OPFACs must be displayed – US Ensign, Auxiliary Patrol Ensign (with the red stripe, NOT the “Blue Ensign”), Patrol banners and operational decal 2010 Operations Workshop Department of Response

  14. Review of “Happen Upon Policy” From the National SAR Manual M16130.2E Paragraph 4.1.6.4(http://www.uscg.mil/directives/cim/16000-16999/CIM_16130_2E.pdf) • If you discover a vessel during routine patrol that requests assistance and that vessel has not been in contact with the Coast Guard: • You may render assistance including tow if capable • Notify the Operational Commander, identity and location of vessel and where you will be towing them • If vessel in danger and you are unable to safely tow, you may endeavor to remove persons from the vessel until additional help can arrive on scene 2010 Operations Workshop Department of Response

  15. Review of “Happen Upon Policy” From the National SAR Manual M16130.2E Paragraph 4.1.6.4(http://www.uscg.mil/directives/cim/16000-16999/CIM_16130_2E.pdf) • Notes: • You make the call on whether you can safely assist • You inform CG SMC (SAR Mission Coordinator) of your intentions, not “ask for permission to tow” • The CG SMC will override your decision only if there is a specific reason to do so, e.g. they need you on another higher priority mission 2010 Operations Workshop Department of Response

  16. Assistance to Auxiliary Facilities From the National SAR Manual M16130.2E Paragraph 4.1.5.8(http://www.uscg.mil/directives/cim/16000-16999/CIM_16130_2E.pdf) • Coast Guard resources or Auxiliary facilities may be used to help Auxiliary facilities in need of assistance at any time • An Auxiliary Facility is defined as an Operational Facility having a current accepted offer of use whether under orders or not • It is NOT just any boat owned by an Auxiliary member 2010 Operations Workshop Department of Response

  17. Safety is Priority 1 • Remember safety of the crew, the public, and the vessel are more important than the mission • PEPIRB – Key piece of safety equipment • Have in on board and on your PFD when underway • Check the battery expiration date • Keep it registered with NOAA • HAZMAT • Remember to steer well clear of ANY HAZMAT situation unless you have a certified HAZMAT responder on your crew 2010 Operations Workshop Department of Response

  24. Operational Risk Management (ORM) • Accept No Unnecessary Risk • Accept Necessary Risk When Benefits Outweigh Costs • Make Risk Decisions at the Appropriate Level • ORM is Just as Critical in Executing as in Planning All Activities 2010 Operations Workshop Department of Response

  25. Operational Risk Management GAR Model • Green – Amber – Red • Any single item 5 or above should be a red flag even if the total score is in the Green • There should be NO zero (no risk) scores and even 1 should be rare for most crews • GAR is done before AND updated during all missions 2010 Operations Workshop Department of Response

  26. Operational Risk Management GAR Model • Green – Amber – Red • If your local OIA(order Issuing Authority) does not have a GAR form requirement use the one on the National Response Department Web site at http://www.cgaux.org/response/SurfaceOps/SurfaceOpsNews.htm - See September 2009 news item 2010 Operations Workshop Department of Response
