Northeastern Small Vessel Security Summit

Tuesday, May 27, 2008

The Coast Guard will host the Northeastern Small Vessel Security Summit June 7, from 9 a.m., until 4 p.m., at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy in Buzzards Bay, Mass.

The conference is free and open to all small vessel stakeholders.

The goal of the forum is to allow attendees to discuss how to reduce risks and threats to smaller vessels on the water and to communicate security concerns in ports and along waterways of the northeast.

Representatives from the Coast Guard and the Homeland Security Institute are scheduled to give presentations.

"This forum is a great opportunity for mariners to speak directly with the Coast Guard and Homeland Security to share ideas and concerns," said Lt. Trevor Cowan with waterways management at the First Coast Guard District in Boston.

People interested in attending the summit should contact Lt. Trevor Cowan by May 29 at 617-223-8385 or via e-mail: Trevor.C.Cowan@uscg.mil.
