Whistle and Paddle Tip Reflector Kits Available

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Association and the Recreational Boating Safety Outreach Directorate have received a grant to buy whistles and paddle tip reflectors for outreach to canoe, kayak, and stand-up paddleboard (SUP) enthusiasts. These items will soon be available through the Auxiliary National Supply Center (ANSC).  Because they are grant-funded, their use must be tracked. To ensure effective tracking, requests for whistles and paddle tip reflectors must be submitted through the Google Form ( Once received, requests will be sent to ANSC for distribution. If you have any questions regarding the whistles and reflectors kits, you can submit them through this form.
