Emerald Isle Coast Guard Wins Prestigious Award

If you're in trouble off the Crystal Coast, you can find comfort in knowing the coast guard responsible for keeping you safe is among the best.

Coast Guard Station Emerald Isle in Carteret County was presented the Sumner Kimbell Readiness Award. That means they are in the top 5% of all coast guard units in the entire country.

An executive officer compared it to winning the Super Bowl of coast guards.

Once every two years a team goes to each station to assess their drills, performance, rescue operations and all of their equipment. Coast Guard Station Emerald Isle passed with flying colors. Congratulations!
