A 400 ft. tower is being constructed at the SPI Coast Guard station. The new “Rescue 21” communications system will help USCG save lives and improve safety in our area. The old system (dated back to the 70’s) didn’t reach out very far. Boaters had to assist with relaying messages to others in distress. The USCG is very excited about this new equipment and we are glad to acquire the added safety this will provide for boaters in our bay and offshore.
