The Marine Safety Center

The marine industry began implementing the Maritime Transportation Security Act requirements one year ago. To help shoulder the increased workload the requirements brought with them, the Coast Guard added 585 marine safety program billets nationwide in fiscal year 2005 alone. The article discusses how partnerships align to enhance Coast Guard roles and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) goals of awareness, prevention, protection, and response. Agreeing to preestablished role for incident and threat response strengthens prevention, protection, response, and recovery posture, and sharing resources in a post-incident situation mitigates recovery and more quickly reestablishes service.
