PRESS RELEASE:

Team Coordination Training – learning how to reduce mission errors

Last Saturday, September 4, 2010, 15 members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary from various flotillas in Division 4 of the Eighth Coastal Region attended an all-day training at the office of Norrhlake Flotilla 42 in Covington, Louisiana. The participants were instructed by William Wellemeyer, Flotilla 42 founder and an Auxiliary member for 35 years.

In the ongoing quest to improve boating safety and increase the skills of those who conduct the Search and Rescue (SAR) Missions, Safety Patrols, etc. the Coast Guard has developed proven techniques that reduce errors that primarily result from lack of or poor communication amongst the team members. Coast Guard and Auxiliary personnel frequently work together on these missions and differences in rank can be intimidating to mission participants who have not been properly trained to speak up when there is a problem or potential problem.

Subjects covered are Effective Leadership, Effective Mission Analysis, Adaptability and Flexibility, Situational Awareness, Decision-Making, Effective Communication and Assertiveness.

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is the uniformed volunteer component of the United States Coast Guard. Created by an Act of Congress in 1939, the Auxiliary directly supports the Coast Guard in all missions, except military and law enforcement actions.
