General Information
Description of ServiceThe United States Coast Guard is one of the five armed forces of the United States and the only military organization within the Department of Homeland Security. Since 1790 the Coast Guard has safeguarded our Nation's maritime interests and environment around the world. The Coast Guard is an adaptable, responsive military force of maritime professionals whose broad legal authorities, capable assets, geographic diversity and expansive partnerships provide a persistent presence along our rivers, in the ports, littoral regions and on the high seas. Coast Guard presence and impact is local, regional, national and international. These attributes make the Coast Guard a unique instrument of maritime safety, security and environmental stewardship.

Pennsylvania falls with the Coast Guard’s 5th District. The Fifth Coast Guard District ensures the safety and security of the oceans, coastal areas, and marine transportation system within America’s Mid-Atlantic Region. We focus on risk reduction and prevention, but are prepared to respond with courage and speed to any maritime incident.

D5’s 156,000 square miles of ocean, bays, rivers, wetlands and tidal marshes are unique and filled with historical significance, encompassing six states, vital geographic waterways, several major mid-Atlantic ports, the largest naval base in the world, and our Nation’s capitol.
