Our vision for e-Coast Guard includes access to all services and information through the web for all employees and customers including persons with disabilities. We are committed to providing access to our site for all individuals with disabilities.

To meet this committment, the U. S. Coast Guard (USCG) complies with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Section 508 requires that individuals with disabilities, who are federal employees or members of the public seeking information for services from the USCG, have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to the information that is available to federal employees or the public who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the USCG.

USCG web pages are designed to work with assistive technologies such as screen readers. If you use assistive technology but are unable to access any material on our site, we encourage you to email us or call us with your concerns. Please help us respond to you more efficiently by indicating the nature of your accessibility problem, the format in which you prefer to receive material, and your contact information.
