THANK YOU to the Fall Chief’s Call to Initiation (CCTI) Prospective Chief Petty Officers (PCPO) and all the volunteers who came out yesterday morning to support the CGI Shoreline Cleanup and BBQ! It was great to see so many people out and about helping to make a difference within our CG Community. Our efforts netted nearly 1800 pounds of garbage removed from the shoreline! #uscgmissionsupport

Did you know that the Industrial Production Facility (IPF) is part of Base Alameda? Embodying the motto of “360 Degrees of Mission Support” the dedicated members of IPF Alameda utilize many different skills and trades to conduct industrial level work throughout the Coast Guard. Some of the projects IPF Alameda completed over the past year included construction of a concrete pad for our new trash compactor, erecting a much needed maintenance tent to support our Cutter Boat Pooling Program and 100% organic support of CGC STRATTON's recent dockside availability. We even deployed our Repair Team, twice! When Coast Guard units are negatively impacted by hurricanes or other natural disasters, we deploy our team to quickly conduct repairs. This enables the unit to return to a fully mission capable status as quickly as possible and remain Semper Paratus! #uscgmissionsupport

Welcome home to the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Bertholf crew, who returned to Alameda, California, Saturday following a three-month, 15K mile, multi-mission patrol to the Eastern Pacific Ocean!

While deployed, the crew conducted counter-narcotics operations and partnered with the Ecuadorian navy to detect and deter potential Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated (IUU) fishing in the vicinity of the Galapagos Islands.

Bertholf’s crews interdicted more than 6,700 pounds of co***ne, worth an estimated wholesale value of more than $115 million during their patrol!

The crew also patrolled over 3,000 square nautical miles of Ecuadorian and international waters conducting the joint IUU patrol with the Ecuadorian navy.

Bertholf and the Ecuadorian naval vessel LAE Isla San Cristobal (LG-30), provided persistent presence and surveillance of fishing activity throughout the region during the week-long mission.

“The U.S. Coast Guard will seek to galvanize global efforts to detect and deter IUU fishing on the high seas and in exclusive economic zones (EEZs) of partner nations. Through the innovative use of intelligence, technology, data analysis, and information sharing, we will identify, target, and interdict illicit actors in the maritime domain to disrupt corrupt cycles of influence that enable illegal operations,” said Admiral Karl Schultz following the release of the IUU Fishing Strategic outlook.

On April 1, U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) began enhanced counter-narcotics operations in the Western Hemisphere to disrupt the flow of drugs in support of Presidential National Security Objectives. Numerous U.S. agencies from the Departments of Defense, Justice, and Homeland Security cooperated to combat transnational organized crime. The Coast Guard, Navy, Customs and Border Protection, FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, along with allied and international partner agencies, play a role in counter-drug operations.

U.S. Coast Guard Pacific Area Command is co-located with multiple commands on U.S. Coast Guard Base Alameda in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our region is currently experiencing some of the worst wildfires in California's history, with hundreds of thousands of acres continuing to burn.

We are very thankful for the selfless service and perseverance by all the CAL FIRE firefighters, local, regional, and partner agencies battling the multiple wildfires in our area.

We have members spread out across the region who work at Coast Guard units in and around the Bay Area and want to be sure all our U.S. Coast Guard members and their families are staying informed of the changing conditions and staying safe.

If you must be outside, check the conditions and reduce your exposure and risk by being aware of the air quality and limiting your time outside when the air quality is poor: https://fire.airnow.gov/

Smoke from the wildfires compounded by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is making this year’s wildfire season much more challenging. The CDC has some great info for preparing and protecting yourself from wildfire smoke during the pandemic: https://www.cdc.gov/disasters/covid-19/wildfire_smoke_covid-19.html

To assist with managing your daily activities in this environment, review and consider the below guidance:

1. Minimizing smoke exposure is the best strategy for mitigating the hazard. This applies universally to members and dependents. This means staying clear of smoky areas and heeding evacuation advisories from local officials.

2. CDC resources are available at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/smoke-faq.html. This resource discusses FAQs concerning the overlap of COVID-19 and our fires.

3. If you cannot leave the smoky area, good ways to protect your lungs from wildfire smoke include staying indoors and reducing physical activity.

Using a Mask:
Wearing a mask can also help protect your lungs from wildfire smoke if you are unable to remain indoors. There is no clear evidence that N95 respirator masks used by the general public is beneficial to a person's health during a poor air quality event, and they can actually make it harder to breathe.

· N95 masks or higher are a last resort for people without access to safer indoor filtered air.
· Some specific masks (N95s or higher) may help those who must be outdoors for long periods, but they must fit well and provide a tight seal around the wearer's mouth and nose to be effective.
· N95 masks require a tight seal to work. Thus, they may not protect men with beards or young children.
· Persons with chronic breathing or heart issues or other medical conditions should check with their health care provider before using an N95 mask, as they can make breathing more difficult.
· Bandanas (wet or dry), paper or surgical masks, or tissues held over the mouth and nose will not protect from wildfire smoke or small particulate matter in the air.

4. Air Quality Index (AQI) conditions, forecasts, and associated health advisories are available online https://cfpub.epa.gov/airnow/index.cfm?action=airnow.local_city&mapcenter=1&cityid=317

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has assigned a specific color to each AQI category to make it easier for people to understand quickly whether air pollution is reaching unhealthy levels in their communities. For example, the color orange means that conditions are "unhealthy for sensitive groups," while red means that conditions may be "unhealthy for everyone," and so on.

There are many resources for tracking the air quality in your area, but here's an option: https://fire.airnow.gov/

Right now, your U.S. Coast Guard continues 228 years of military service around the globe. In Antarctica, the USCGC POLAR STAR is at the ice edge ready to clear a path thru multi-year ice to support U.S. Indo-Pacific Command’s #OPERATIONDEEPFREEZE. In the Middle East, crews from U.S. Coast Guard Patrol Forces Southwest Asia are conducting maritime security operations in the Arabian Gulf for U.S. Central Command. At Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve is providing water and landside security for U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM). At the same time, USCGC ALERT is pursuing dangerous drug smugglers off Central and South America in support of our Nation’s security. Our #USCG members continue to save lives every day, deter human trafficking, and conduct global defense operations.

While our Coast Guard workforce is deployed, there are loved ones at home reviewing family finances, researching how to get support, and weighing childcare options—they are holding down the fort. Please know that we are doing everything we can to support and advocate for you while your loved one stands the watch. You have not, and will not, be forgotten.

Close order drill is one foundation of discipline and esprit de corps. Additionally, it is still one of the finest methods for developing confidence and the leadershp abilities of our cadet leadership team.

Calif are you ready to vote TODAY? https://ballotpedia.org/California_elections,_2018 (they put the republican's on the bottom)
Unless I'm mistaken that is what was Treasure Island Naval Base, but I do seem to be mistaken because Treasure Island is in the middle of the Bay and That looks more like the Oakland Estuary. Did they create that island for the Coast Guard?
