Come for the Boating Education - Stay for the Friendssm
The main public service of United States Power Squadrons and
Coos Bay Squadron has been the safety education of boaters. As the organizations
have grown more services to the public have been added.
Through a program
known as Cooperative Charting, United States Power Squadrons® and Coos Bay Squadron have assisted the
federal government in keeping navigation charts current by reporting
changes that have taken place since the last edition of the chart was printed.
Coos Bay squadron has adopted the Coos Bay chart #18587 and helps keep it up to date by reporting changes that affect navigation.
Another public service for boaters is the Vessel Safety Check program (VSC), the
program developed with the Coast Guard Auxilary to replace the CME ( Courtesy
Coos Bay Squadron also cooperates with the Coos
County Marine Deputies, the US Coast Guard and Auxillary and National Safe
Boating Council in promoting National Safe Boating Week and boating safety
through out the year.
