The COMMCOM deployable communicators in Louisiana were restoring Search and Rescue communications capabilities when they heard cries for help from a nearby house, which sustained heavy damage during Hurricane IDA. Inside the structure, they found several pets that weathered the storm on the elevated deck. The team safely lowered the animals from the structure, provided them with water, and transported them to a nearby animal hospital.

We always answer the call — even from our furry friends! Coast Guard operations are challenging, communications should not be.

The Communications Command always answers the call! We have a very large presence in Louisiana supporting response to #HurricaneIDA for Search and Rescue, Marine Environmental incidents, and MTS inspections. Currently, we have 23 of the Coast Guard’s finest deployable communicators, six mobile communications assets, and a trailer full of communications gear with more resources on the way. We’ve supported the setup of Incident Command Posts and Forward Operating Bases in addition to restoring critical infrastructure with erected towers and establishing communications networks vital to the mission ex*****on.

Twelve of Communications Command's deployable communicators completed the Emergency Vehicle Operators Course hosted by the DHS Federal Law Enforcement Academy.
During the course, the communicators learned the dynamics of emergency vehicle operations and perfected a series of driving courses intended to challenge drivers and push their limits responding to a simulated emergency. This training is vital to the communicators ability to operate their assets in response to real world emergencies.

MK3 Burkowski won bragging rights as the fastest time completing the final drive for evaluation while CWO Lebrecht won a coveted piece of a course marker for delivering a devastating blow to the marker during skid training.

Big thank you to the outstanding instructors that coached our crew though the high speed and intense curriculum.

A crew of deployable communicators from the United States Coast Guard Communications Command deployed to U.S. Coast Guard Sector San Juan in Puerto Rico in support of a hurricane exercise to ensure readiness, resiliency, and preparedness. The exercise stressed the capabilities and interoperability of the incident command post with the support of COMMCOM's deployable crew and capabilities.

The crew and the Mobile Communications Vehicle (MCV) flew down aboard a C-130 from USCG Air Station Elizabeth City. The MCV is a "command center in a box" able to provide vital radio, data, and voice communication networks when all other infrastructure has been damaged.

It’s a big week at the COMMCOM! Four deployed operations while conducting continuity of operations exercises for the U.S. Coast Guard’s long-range communications.

Our freshly painted eMICP (thanks to Aviation Logistics Center) is rolling out to support maritime security operations. Our Rescue 21 Disaster Recovery Suite (DRS) is restoring capabilities in Santa Cruz for Sector San Francisco during a simultaneous exercise with our east coast DRS teams to support both U.S. Coast Guard Pacific Area and U.S. Coast Guard Atlantic Area Command. We’re also en route to support Coast Guard District 9 for an Incident Command Post exercise on the Great Lakes.
