If a funding lapse occurs, the Coast Guard Auxiliary Manual (COMDTINST M16790.1G) Chapter 2, paragraph B.25 require the Auxiliary to cease all activities where individual members depart home, unless supporting one of the exempt functions identified in law & policy. An Active Duty Order Issuing Authority must SPECIFICALLY call for Auxiliary assistance to support an above mission. The message MAY be relayed through the Chain of Leadership. Any orders will be the exception. To be clear, the Auxiliary is specifically prohibited from travel for training, meetings (including Change of Watch), all RBS activities, or any other authorized activity until funding is restored. Auxiliary members are encouraged to complete tasks from home, including online training modules.
If there is a lapse in DHS funding for FY2015, no further financial obligations may be incurred by DHS, except for those related to the orderly suspension of DHS operations or performance of exempted activities as defined in Chapter 6.4.2 of the Financial Resource Management Manual (FRMM), COMDTINST M7100.3E. Exempt functions include distress phase search and rescue, significant [federal] aids to navigation outage affecting the safe flow of commerce, or domestic ice operations to move critical energy supplies or prevent flooding.
Please contact me immediately if you have any questions or concerns regarding whether an activity is exempt or non-exempt. I am working closely with the Order Issuing Authorities to identify their expectation for Auxiliary support of exempted missions.
I understand that this is a frustrating period. These guidelines are solely based on appropriation law and this is in NO WAY a reflection of the value of the Auxiliary to the Coast Guard or the American people. Thank you for your patience and perseverance as we move forward together.

1. The National Weather Service has issued blizzard warnings for the Captain of the Port Long Island Sound and New York zones from Monday afternoon through Tuesday night, 26 – 27 January 2015. Snow accumulations of 24 to 36 inches in Connecticut and Long Island, NY and 18-24 inches in New York City, with sustained winds near 40 mph and stronger gusts are expected. Heavy snowfall and high winds may limit visibility to ¼ mile. Moderate coastal flooding due to storm surge is also possible.
2. Life-threatening conditions and extremely dangerous travel due to heavy snowfall and strong winds with whiteout conditions. Many roads may become impassable. Strong winds may down power lines and tree limbs
3. No attainment reporting is required for storm condition blizzard (this differs from hurricane condition status reporting). Report notice of critical structure failure (such as bridge collapse) to relevant sector command center. Post storm accountability check will be initiated on or about the evening of the 27th.
4. Take all precautions to secure equipment and property. Top off fuel tanks, as fuel pumps will not function in the event of power failure. Test generators. Confirm adequate supply of water and food for several days. Charge all mobile devices. Test flashlights, radios and check first aid kits. Use shovels and snowblowers with extreme caution. Be smart, stay safe
5. Monitor weather forecasts. http://www.weather.gov/
6. Watchstanders, Food Service Specialists and R21 Task Force members, please stand by for the possibility of post-storm mobilization. Incident Management Team, support as directed by SECLIS as conditions permit. All other members will be contacted if needed.
