There is no dispute between the Coast Guard and Mayor Newsom or City of San Francisco Fire Department officials about the fact that the city offered the services of their fire boat in the early stages of this response and we did not take advantage of that offer. We are investigating exactly what happened and what communications took place during this response jointly with the City of San Francisco and others to ensure a more effective reaction to any future incident.
