Small Vessel Security Conference In Long Beach This Weekend

LONG BEACH – The U.S. Coast Guard will host the West Coast Small Vessel Security Summit Saturday at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Long Beach.

The objective of the one-day summit is to focus the broad West Coast regional stakeholder community on a range of issues and to launch continuing interactions regarding management of small vessel security risk in the U.S. maritime domain.

The Summit format will consist of an address by Rear Adm. Craig E. Bone, Commander of the Eleventh Coast Guard District in Alameda, discussions about America’s Waterways Watch program, small vessel security issues and a small vessel threat workshop.

The Eleventh Coast Guard District, which encompasses California, Arizona, Nevada, and Utah, had over 1 million registered boaters in 2006. Saturday’s activities are centered on providing a regional forum for small vessel operators, both commercial and recreational, to identify their U.S. maritime domain security issues and concerns in the Western states.
