Summary
Coast Guard search and rescue (SAR) stations have played and continue to play an important role in protecting the lives of commercial fishermen, recreational boaters, and other involved in accidents on the nation's waterways. Reacting to an expected shortage of funds in January 1988 the United States Coast Guard decided to close nine of its SAR stations and to curtail operations at six others. The Congress directed the Coast Guard to reopen closed stations and not close any SAR operations until GAO reviewed and reported on the January 1988 decision. Accordingly, GAO assessed the supportability of the Coast Guard's decisions focusing on the process and criteria the Coast Guard used to select SAR stations for closure or curtailment of operations
