Deploying 24-hour per day boat crew patrols is the way U.S. Coast Guard’s (USCG) Sector San Francisco is keeping vital sea lanes safe and free of obstructions that could slow or stop ocean-going vessels’ ability to access ports in the San Francisco Bay.
Lt. Cmdr. Matthew Kroll, Public Affairs Officer, U.S.C.G. Eleventh District, which includes Sector San Francisco, said in an interview: “Right now a key element is keeping the ship channels clear and insuring there are no obstacles that might lead to a container ship, tanker or tug barge colliding with a floating object.”
Kroll noted that “As supply chain issues are a paramount issue at our six ports in San Francisco Bay, it is essential that we avoid potential hazards for vessels arriving and departing the Bay.”Share
