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 recreational boating.

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 Marine Examination).

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.

For more information on any of these services contact an officer of Coos Bay Squadron. ( listed below )
