This new District Level program is under the National Q-Directorate.
Incident Management is an evolving function in the Coast Guard, and the Auxiliary recognizes the need to keep pace with that expansion. Auxiliary Sector Coordinators have had the task of monitoring and improving Auxiliary performance and readiness in support of Sector needs, but managing critical incidents puts an additional strain on incident staff and responders.
To effectively manage incidents it is critical that prior planning and training take place among responders. To aid in overcoming challenges in these areas, the position of District Staff Officer – Incident Management and Preparedness has been developed and approved at the National level, and will be effective starting 01 JAN 2015.
We are the program manager for the District AIMS / Everbridge notification system. This is the tool we use to automate and manage member life-safety accountability post incident.
Anthony E Marzano serves as the District Staff Officer for Incident Management.
