>Coast Guard District 17


We serve and safeguard the public, protect the environment and its resources, and defend the Nation’s interests in the Alaskan maritime region.
The United States Coast Guard is a military, multi-mission, maritime service within the Department of Homeland Security and is one of the nation’s five armed services.
The Coast Guard protects the public, the environment, and U.S. economic and security interests in America’s ports and inland waterways, along its 95,000 miles of coastlines, throughout its 3.4 million square miles of exclusive economic zones, and in any maritime region in which those interests may be at risk.
The service has five fundamental roles: Maritime Security, National Defense, Maritime Safety, Protection of Natural Resources and Maritime Mobility. All of these are conducted in Alaska on a grand scale.
