CORRECTION: Coast Guard updates command center telephone number for Southwest Washington, Oregon

Editor's Note: The new telephone number for emergency response is 833-769-8724 / 833-PNW-USCG  - not the previously reported 833-PDX-USCG. The previously reported number for the automated directory (833-771-2565) is not currently active due to technical difficulties.

PORTLAND, Ore. — The Coast Guard command center serving Southwest Washington and Oregon will be using an updated telephone number for emergency response following the establishment of the new command center in Portland.

Legacy telephone numbers used to reach Coast Guard command centers in North Bend and Astoria began forwarding calls to watchstanders in Portland Monday, April 3, 2023. These legacy lines will continue to work for a three-month period.

After this three-month transitional period, the legacy telephone numbers will be replaced by the following number to reach the Portland-based command center for emergency response.

The telephone number for emergency response is 833-769-8724 / 833-PNW-USCG
