Coast Guard units throughout the Northeast increased their presence to ensure safety and security of the ports and waterways, after Monday’s bombings at the Boston Marathon.

Boston station crews, cutters, aircraft and maritime safety and security teams from Boston and New York, along with local stations and patrol boats are operating throughout the port with a heightened awareness alongside partners and fellow first responders.

The Coast Guard is asking the maritime community to remain vigilant and report concerns to law enforcement officials. The message continues to apply: “If you see something, say something.”
