The Coast Guard plays a critical role in maritime and disaster resiliency.
The latest edition of Disaster Zone TV features an interview with Rear Admiral Kieth Taylor, Commander, 13th Coast Guard District.
Previous to this interview I had heard Admiral Taylor speak on the need for disaster resiliency. He has been a strong advocate for a number of resiliency issues including building a cross-border effort to get United States and Canadian maritime interests to find ways to coordinate their activities before, during and after a disaster. You will also find this interview of great interest if you don't know much about the functions of the Coast Guard and the assets that they bring to the table.
