Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit (MSU) Savannah informs it has held a change of command ceremony to formally recognize transfer of command of the unit from Cmdr. Joseph Loring to Cmdr. Amy Beach.

Cmdr. Loring served as commander of MSU Savannah for the past three years and is departing to continue his service at Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Loring said Savannah has an excellent and strong maritime community and provides unparalleled military support, and the MSU does great work so it is hard for him to leave. “I’ve had a great tour,” he added.

Cmdr. Amy Beach  who previously served as chief of the prevention department at Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound in New Haven, Conn., said she’s excited to begin working in a job many Coast Guard officers consider to be the best commanding officer position in the service.

The missions of MSU Savannah include stewardship of maritime resources; administration and enforcement of vessel safety standards; response to and investigation of marine casualties, violations of navigation laws, oil spills, and hazardous material releases; and outreach and coordination of contingency plans and preparedness activities with area stakeholders.
