Discussion of Notice
Sector Guam's address is PSC 455 Box 176, FPO AP 96540-1056. Sector Guam contains a single Command Center located at Victor Wharf, U.S. Naval Activities Marianas. Sector Guam is composed of a Response Department, a Prevention Department, and a Logistics Department. Effective December 30, 2004, all existing missions and functions performed by Marianas Section and Marine Safety Office Guam were consolidated and are now performed by Sector Guam. Marianas Section and Marine Safety Office Guam no longer exist as organizational entities.
Sector Guam is responsible for all Coast Guard Missions in the same zone as the one described in 33 CFR part 3, subpart 3.70-15(b). Coast Guard District Fourteen maintains Search and Rescue Mission Coordinator responsibilities in all other portions of its area of responsibility not specifically designated within the scope of Sector Honolulu or Sector Guam.
The Sector Guam Commander is vested with all the rights, responsibilities, duties, and authority of a Group Commander and Commanding Officer, Marine Safety Office, as provided in Coast Guard regulations, and is the successor in command to the Commanding Officer of Marine Safety Office Guam and the Commander, Marianas Section. The Sector Guam Commander is designated: (a) Captain of the Port (COTP) for the Guam COTP zone; (b) Federal Maritime Security Coordinator (FMSC) for Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands; (c) Federal On Scene Coordinator (FOSC) for the Guam COTP zone, consistent with the National Contingency Plan; and (d) Officer in Charge of Marine Inspection (OCMI) for the Guam Marine Inspection Zone. The Deputy Sector Commander is designated alternate COTP, FMSC, FOSC, and OCMI. A continuity of operations order has been issued ensuring that all previous Section Marianas and Marine Safety Office Guam practices and procedures will remain in effect until superseded by Commander, Sector Guam. This continuity of operations order addresses existing COTP regulations, orders, directives, and policies.
