Mission Statement of the West Haven (CT) Flotilla

The mission of the West Haven Flotilla 24-11 of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary is to leverage our resources in a most effective manner in order to deliver a superior level of service to our customers including the United States Coast Guard, the State of Connecticut, our Auxiliary members, and the boating public.

We will balance our missions in the traditional cornerstones of member services, recreational boating safety, Coast Guard support with Maritime Homeland Security and other challenges that emerge as a result of our growing understanding of changes required by all in the post-9/11 era.  We will contribute to the safety and security of our citizens, ports, waterways, and coastal regions and provide additional support in non-traditional roles to the best of our ability.

We will listen to, actively engage in, and assist our customers in protecting people, property, and the marine environment while maximizing our support in their prevention, preparedness, and response roles.

Recognizing that our people are our number one resource, we will endeavor to educate, train, develop leadership and management skills at all levels and advance their safety and well being.

We will be committed to the Coast Guard values of

Honor, Respect, and Devotion to Duty.
