The Coast Guard will enforce the safety zone in 33 CFR 165.1305 for the Tacoma Freedom Air Show on Commencement Bay from 2 p.m. on July 3 through 12:30 a.m. on July 4, 2021. This action is being taken to provide for the safety of life on navigable waterways during the aerial demonstrations above the waterway. The safety zone resembles a rectangle protruding from the shoreline along Ruston Way and will be marked by the event sponsor. The specific coordinates of the safety zone location are listed in 33 CFR 165.1305.
As specified in § 165.1305(c), during the enforcement period, no vessel may transit the regulated area without approval from the COTP or a COTP designated representative. The COTP may be assisted by other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies in enforcing this regulation.
In addition to this notice of enforcement in the Federal Register, the Coast Guard plans to provide notification of this enforcement period via the Local Notice to Mariners, marine information broadcasts during the day of the event. If the COTP determines that the safety zone need not be enforced for the full duration stated in the notice of enforcement, they will use a Broadcast Notice to Mariners or Local Notice to Mariners to grant general permission to enter the regulated area.
