USCG Sector Support

Experienced Emergency Preparedness Representatives

The US Coast Guard Contingency Planning and Force Readiness Department (Sector Delaware Bay) is looking for Auxiliarists who have emergency preparedness experience to represent the Sector in Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPCs) meetings. LEPCs are community-based organizations that assist in preparing for emergencies, particularly those concerning hazardous materials. LEPC membership includes elected state and local officials, police, fire, civil defense, and public health professionals. LEPCs develop emergency response plans, review the plan at least annually, and provide information about hazardous materials in the community to citizens.

Some LEPCs meet monthly during typical business hours. Others meet bi-monthly, some meet at night, and others meet on weekends. Some might meet only for a portion of the year (September to May).

Sector is looking for candidates who live in select counties and are interested in participating in the meetings to act as liaisons between the LEPC and the Coast Guard. The ideal candidate(s) are current or retired police, fire, EMT, etc. but it is not a requirement that one was a public servant. It is expected that one or two Auxiliarists can provide the USCG presence at their respective county's local emergency planning committee meeting and again, act as liaisons between the LEPC and the Coast Guard. Representatives are needed in Ocean, Atlantic, Cape May, Salem, Gloucester, Camden, and Burlington Counties of NJ. Representatives are also needed in Sussex and Kent Counties in DE, and Bucks County in PA.

The representing Auxiliarist(s) will have to research their local LEPC, determine when and where they meet, engage with the Sector to learn of initiatives and exercises to include in an USCG brief to the LEPC, and capture critical activities of the LEPC from meetings that you attended and brief back to the Contingency Planning and Force Readiness Department. Sector representatives will attend the first meeting with the new Auxiliary Liaisons. If you are interested or have questions, please forward a description of your qualifications, experience, and/or questions to Mr. Gerald Conrad at Also, include your county of residence or the LEPCs' meetings that you are interested in attending. Thank you for your consideration. District Chief of Staff.
