Coast Guard Maritime Safety Unit Portland established, command changes hands

PORTLAND, Ore. — Capt. Daniel L. LeBlanc took charge of Marine Safety Unit Portland during a ceremony Tuesday.

LeBlanc relieved Captain Leonard Tumbarello who will assume the duties of Deputy Commander of Sector Columbia River in Astoria, Ore., which was formed along with Marine Safety Unit Portland by combining Sector Portland with Group/Air Station Astoria.

Both newly formed units are aimed at increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of Coast Guard personnel and assets.

“As Commanding Officer of the newly commissioned Marine Safety Unit Portland, my primary focus will be to maintain, and in many cases exceed, the traditional high level of customer service provided to the maritime industry stakeholders in the Portland area,” said LeBlanc.
