Our FOB Point Mugu crew in action!
Check out Good Morning Americas broadcast this morning. Look for more news on the Coast Guard effort tonight on ABC Nightly News and Dateline on NBC
Crews at FOB Point Mugu flew some MSD Santa Barbara personnel to check the environmental impact along the California coast. They identified multiple beached sail boats as well as 2 cars what were washed down by the mud slides into the ocean. Clean up is far from over but we are making progress #uscg #santabarbara
Great work by our friends from San Diego who came to help with the mud slides...the crew picked up a family of 5 including 2 dogs...more updates to come!
For the last 13 hours, helicopter crews from the United States Coast Guard FOB Point Mugu and Air Station San Diego assisted the Incident Command Post in Santa Barbara on Search Rescue efforts for multiple, major mud slides in the Santa Barbara and Carpentaria areas. Our crews, operating through heavy rain squalls, were the first on-scene to conduct medical evacuations and damage assessments. Throughout the day we rescued over 30 people, most notably a family of 5 with 2 children, a toddler and 2 dogs. Great coordination by U.S. Coast Guard Los Angeles in keeping our crews safe...more updates to come! #uscg #guardiansofthegoldengate #mudslide

Great opportunity to assist CalFire in keeping up the fight this weekend.

While we continue to stand our 24hr maritime SAR watch, we are also doing what we can to help the #thomasfire as a MEDEVAC resource in SoCal! Keep all the first responders to this fire in your thoughts. #SoCalSAR #guardiansofthegoldengate #CalFire #AirAttack #helitac
As of tonight, the #thomasfire has burned almost 96,000 acres in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. With all contracted helicopter being utilized for fire suppression, two Channel Islands National Park employees were stranded on Santa Barbara Island. Our Forward Operating Base Point Mugu crew was able to execute an agency assist to get these members back to their families who were under mandatory evacuations in Ojai, CA. Just another example of great inter-agency corporation! #guardiansofthegoldengate #fobptmugu #uscg
