Mission: Search and Rescue (SAR) is one of the Coast Guard's oldest missions. To meet this mission, the Coast Guard’s SAR response system uses multi-mission stations, cutters, aircraft, and boats linked by a complex communications network. Goals Minimize loss of life, personal injury, and property loss and damage. Improve search and rescue using technology and education. Maintain world leadership in maritime search and rescue.

Hoaxes hurt everyone: Those really in distress at sea by interfering with legitimate search and rescue cases The taxpayer by wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars annually The U.S. Coast Guard by placing our people in danger by operating ships, boats, and aircraft in response to these false distress calls Tower Site Selection:  Tower Site Selection Tower Site Selection:  Tower Site Selection Tower Site Selection:  Tower Site Selection Tower Site Selection:  Tower Site Selection Existing Towers At Shinnecock Considered for Co-Location What is NEPA?:  What is NEPA? The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires Federal Agencies to integrate environmental values into their decision-making process To meet this requirement, the U.S. Coast Guard prepared an Environmental Assessment NEPA – Created to safeguard our nation’s environment. What is NEPA?:  What is NEPA? NEPA also requires the agency to involve the public The Coast Guard invites the public to provide comments and information that will assist them in assessing the full range of impacts associated with our project NEPA – Created to safeguard our nation’s environment. What is NEPA?:  What is NEPA? NEPA – Created to safeguard our nation’s environment. USCG identifies the need to upgrade communications system to improve search and rescue efforts USCG as Lead Agency decides to prepare an EA to assess environmental effects of proposed action/ alternatives Public and regulatory agency input Issues of concern identified Conduct field studies to assess extent of impacts Prepare Draft EA to include: Need for proposed action Feasible alternatives Environmental impacts Agencies, persons consulted in EA preparation Agency review Public input on Draft EA Prepare Final EA Significant impacts? Prepare Environmental Impact Statement or consider additional alternatives Issue Finding of No Significant Impact and Public Notice YES NO RFF Shinnecock Siting Considerations:  RFF Shinnecock Siting Considerations What we consider: Environmentally sensitive areas Wetlands and endangered species habitat Cultural resources Historic and archaeological properties Other Existing utilities, septic, etc. RFF Shinnecock Siting Considerations:  RFF Shinnecock Siting Considerations How we lessen environmental impact: Identify sensitive areas Avoid direct impact Coordinate with natural resource agencies to identify protection measures RFF Shinnecock Siting Considerations:  RFF Shinnecock Siting Considerations Environmental Assessment Impact Evaluation:  Environmental Assessment Impact Evaluation Natural, cultural, and socio-economic resources are evaluated: Wetlands Cultural resources Endangered species Radiation Visual impacts Environmental Assessment Findings Proposed Tower at Shinnecock:  RESOURCE AREA POTENTIAL IMPACTS Radio Frequency Radiation Proposed RFF Shinnecock would generate radio frequency radiation; however, the tower would not substantially increase radio frequency radiation in the project area. As a result, no human health effects are expected to occur. Wildlife No significant habitat loss or conversion would result from the Proposed Action. RFF Shinnecock would present a potential risk for collisions to migratory birds; however, the tower height would be below the threshold generally thought to pose the greatest risk. Additionally, in accordance with a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Memorandum of Understanding, the Coast Guard would implement all reasonable measures to avoid affecting migratory birds. Threatened and Endangered Species There is a remote possibility that a protected bird could inadvertently fly into the tower; however, the probability of such an event is so small that it is not considered a significant impact. Environmental Assessment Findings Proposed Tower at Shinnecock Environmental Assessment Findings Proposed Tower at Shinnecock:  Environmental Assessment Findings Proposed Tower at Shinnecock RESOURCE AREA POTENTIAL IMPACTS Wetlands Construction would occur within 300 feet of a regulated tidal wetland; however, no impacts to this wetland are expected. A permit would be obtained from the New York Department of Environmental Conservation for this project. Best management practices would be implemented to prevent soil from being transported to wetlands in the area. Floodplains Construction would occur within the 100-year floodplain; however, this development would not be considered a significant encroachment and the Proposed Action is not expected to have an effect on upstream or downstream floodplains. Communications equipment would be elevated to prevent flood damage. Cultural Resources No impact. If unanticipated archaeological resources are discovered, the Coast Guard would consult with the NY State Historic Preservation Officer regarding appropriate treatment measures. Environmental Assessment Findings Proposed Tower at Shinnecock:  RESOURCE AREA POTENTIAL IMPACTS Recreation The Proposed Action would have a positive impact on marine recreational users by ensuring a more reliable and efficient response by the Coast Guard in emergency situations. The tower would be visible from local parks and beaches; however, no significant adverse impacts are expected. Visual Resources The proposed tower would be visible to residents and visitors in the vicinity of the project area. Tower lighting may pose a slight visual distraction during twilight and nighttime hours. Coastal Zone No impact. The Proposed Action is consistent to the extent practicable with the enforceable policies of the New York Coastal Management Program. Environmental Assessment Findings Proposed Tower at Shinnecock Visual Impact Of Proposed Tower at U.S. Coast Guard Station Shinnecock:  Visual Impact Of Proposed Tower at U.S. Coast Guard Station Shinnecock NOTE: These photos show representative visual impacts. The visual impacts within a one-mile area of potential effects are evaluated in detail in the Environmental Assessment. Looking south toward Station Shinnecock.

NOTE: These photos show representative visual impacts. The visual impacts within a one-mile area of potential effects are evaluated in detail in the Environmental Assessment.
