US Coast Guard
PART OF A LONG TRADITION OF LIFESAVERS
One of 20 stations in the Coast Guard, the Merrimack River Station in Newburyport, Massachusetts is home to the men and women protecting our waters with search, rescue and law enforcement.
As the the birthplace of the U.S. Coast Guard, our Newburyport Coast Guardsmen are responsible for some of the greatest rescues, with history dating back almost 200 years.
Born Ready, through intense surf and heavy breaking seas, these men and women maintain and handle several sea going vessels including steel hull boats, a utility power boat and Boston Whalers.
