Welcome to the First Southern Public Affairs Website
Public Affairs is an informational catalyst that successfully promotes the Auxiliary and its programs. The Public Affairs Department builds, reinforces and promotes the Coast Guard Auxiliary by initiating and maintaining ongoing relationships with the US Coast Guard, multi-level media and the entire national public. Internally we interact with every department of the Auxiliary promoting their efforts and accomplishments on both an internal and external level.
Our mission is to promote the development and enhancement of public understanding in regard to the role of the Auxiliary. In addition we focus on elevating public level of appreciation for the Auxiliary and its programs
