Here’s Your Invite to Check Out the Coast Guard Facility
Coast Guard Sector Humboldt Bay welcomes the public to the annual Station Humboldt Bay Open House on Saturday, August 22, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m at: 200 New Navy Base Road, Samoa, California.
All are invited to visit the facility and meet the crew of the local Coast Guard motor lifeboat station. Guests will be able to tour the historic building and climb aboard rescue boats. Boat crews will be available to discuss their missions, general boating safety, and how the Coast Guard renders assistance to mariners operating off the dangerous north coast of California.
Several members of our partner agencies will also be available for guests to meet including: the Eureka Flotilla of the Coast Guard Auxiliary, local police and fire departments, and a Coast Guard Sector Humboldt Bay helicopter. Joint training between the Coast Guard helicopter and boat will take place in front of the station.
“The Coast Guard has been located on the North Spit since the 1800’s providing assistance to the maritime community. The open house provides the public an excellent opportunity to come out and see the historic building and meet the fine men and women of today’s Coast Guard,” said Master Chief Petty Officer Jon Gagnon, Officer in Charge of Station Humboldt Bay.
