Who We Are

Our Division consists of about 225 active members among 9 flotillas in Northeastern Wisconsin and Northwestern Michigan. Members range in age from 17 to 91. About 18% of our members are female.

What We Do

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is a civilian, non-military component of the U.S. Coast Guard. The flotillas of Division 4 support all of the Coast Guard's missions except military and law enforcement actions. Division 09404 provides administrative, training, communication and supervisory support to the eight flotillas under its control.

Flotilla members in Division 4 actively patrol local waterways including Lake Michigan, Lake Winnebago and the Fox River.They meet regularly with the boating public at marinas and in classrooms providing vessel safety checks and boating education.

Many of the Auxiliarists in Divison 09504 serve side-by-side with active duty members of the U.S. Coast Guard at Stations in Sheboygan, Two Rivers, Sturgeon Bay and Washington Island. Division 4 is also the home of AUXOP Green Bay, one of the few Auxiliary operated U.S. Coast Guard Stations in the Nation. These members provide direct operational assistance to the U.S. Coast Guard in non-law enforcement programs such as search and rescue and marine environmental protection.
