Auxiliary Food Service needs help. 01/27/2017

Miss cooking for your kids? We have the perfect opportunity for you. The Auxiliary Food Services program is looking for members interested in cooking to be trained and qualified to serve at local Coast Guard stations and aboard cutters in their galleys as the need arises. The Coast Guard is short personnel and the Auxiliary is being asked frequently to assist. We are planning to hold a class early spring at a CG Station still be determined. Members will be required to complete 12 hours of classroom training, the AUXFS PQS, 4 hour TCT every 2 years, have completed their MT and an annual Sanitation workshop. While there is currently no minimum number of hours required to remain current, you will be expected to assist at CG stations as needed and logistically feasible. If you are interested, please fill out the linked registration form and send it to Noreen Schifini, DSO-FS at Schifiniuscgaux@aol.com.

COMMCOMM Calling, Hurricane Matthew is upon us 10/16/2016
 
That was the call to AUGCOM, AUXMON, and HF stations around the country. While many Auxiliarists were hunkered down for Hurricane Matthew, Auxiliarists from 5NR and across the country responded to the call to duty to put additional stations on the air to monitor for ships in distress.

Auxiliarists from two National based programs, AUGCOM and AUXMON are available to assist COMMCOM (USCG Communications Command). These stations are typically activated to listen for distress signals on the High Frequency (HF) radio bands when called by COMMCOM for specific events like hurricanes and last year the El Faro sinking.

Three 5NR AUXMON stations, 19-2 Rossiter, 19-2 Taylor, and joined with 17 other stations responded to the call up from COMMCOM on Thursday 5 Oct. at 1540hrs EDT until Saturday 7 Oct. at 2300hrs EDT. The team accumulated 365 mission hours monitoring multiple frequencies resulting in two reports to COMMCOM, one distress call and one questionable status of ships at sea.

Any HF stations interested in joining either the AUGCOM or AUXMON programs, see the information on the National site at http://wow.uscgaux.info/content.php?unit=R-DEPT&category=MEMBERSONLY (login is required to access this page) or contact Rick Taylor at richard.taylor@cgauxnet.us.
