Welcome and thank you for visiting District 9ER Marine Safety and Environmental Protection website. I hope you will find this site informative and that it will answer some of your questions about the auxiliary role in Marine Safety.
The Marine Safety field offers you new and exciting opportunities that can take you beyond the traditional roles performed by the Auxiliary such as search and rescue, and boating safety. As a member of our Marine Safety team you can receive training and become qualified to conduct Harbor Patrols, conduct presentations pertaining to America’s Waterway Watch, or Sea Partners. Maybe you will find yourself enforcing safety zones, or visiting marinas and performing Marpol V checks. You may be a Vessel Examiner and would like to be qualified in the UPV program, think of the added opportunities that inspecting charter boats would bring. Maybe it is administrative duties that you like; you can aid the daily operations by conducting watchstander duties and aiding in pollution case preparation. There is a lot to do and something for everyone. Don’t find yourself left at the dock, get on board and become part of 9ER Marine Safety Team Today!
