Maggy Herbelin talks with Chara Tolber-Food, Specialist 1 and Elizabeth Schiedel-Boatswine, Mate from the US Coast Guard Humboldt Bay.  Coast Guard Sector Humboldt Bay serves the public along 250 miles of rugged coastline from the Mendocino-Sonoma County line north to the California-Oregon border.

Cold Pacific currents, powerful Alaskan winter storms, towering offshore rocks, fog, and dangerous harbor entrance bars consistently threaten commercial and recreational vessels operating in the area.

The Command Center located at Sector Humboldt Bay monitors for distress 24 hours a day and directs Coast Guard boats and aircraft to respond to any maritime emergency in the region; along the coast, well offshore, or even inland. The Sector also works with many local, state and federal agencies as needed.

As part of Eureka’s Coast Guard City celebration, the Coast Guard will be opening their Humboldt Bay bases to the public. August 13th: Historic Station Humboldt Bay at Samoa will hold an open house 10AM-3PM.
