Coast Guard establishes hotline for families of Hurricane Gustav responders

HOUSTON – The Coast Guard Incident Management Team in St. Louis has established a hotline for families of Coast Guard personnel responding to Hurricane Gustav.

The phone number is intended for those who have family members in the Coast Guard who are involved in Hurricane Gustav response. The IMT has received calls from moms, dads and grandparents requesting information about their loved ones, who they have been unable to contact. A top priority of the Coast Guard is to ensure the safety of our personnel and families, and to account for their location during such an incident.

The Coast Guard encourages family members to call: 1-800-USCG-WLS ext: 302
