If you are in a life-threatening situation and you need rescue, call 911 first, then your local emergency operation center (EOC). If you are unable to connect with your local emergency services, then call the Coast Guard.
Members of the media can find out more information by contacting their nearest Coast Guard public affairs office.
An interactive, color-coded map will show which office covers a particular geographic region.
