Coast Guard Marine Safety Detachment Kenai relocated to new offices in Homer last week.
The Coast Guard moved into new offices in the historic Main Street Mercantile, built in 1936, during the first week of April in order to provide greater accessibility to the majority of the Unit’s customers and maintain a valuable connection with the people across the western Kenai Peninsula.
A commissioning ceremony for the new Homer location will be 10:30 a.m. May 3. The Marine Safety Detachment Kenai will be officially renamed Marine Safety Detachment Homer. The public is invited to attend the event.
Marine Safety Detachment Kenai is a six person office responsible for marine casualty investigations, pollution response and marine inspections throughout the western Kenai Peninsula. The move means all six are in the process of moving to Homer to staff the facility. Officer Lt. Sarah Geoffrion said they are excited to be moving to the historic building, and to Homer.
Effective today, all inquiries should be directed to the new offices in Homer at: Marine Safety Detachment Homer, 104 E. Pioneer Ave. Homer, AK 99603. For more information, contact Lt. Sarah Geoffrion, MSD Homer officer in charge, at (907) 235-3292.
