America’s Storm Warriors

The U.S. Life-Saving Service Heritage Association (USLSSHA) is an organization dedicated to preserving the history of the US Life Saving Service and early US Coast Guard.

No other group of historic American buildings is more endangered than our life-saving and lifeboat stations. To a far greater extent even than lighthouses, life-saving stations are still being lost and falling into tragic disrepair.

The USLSSHA is dedicated to providing communication among many preservation-minded individuals and organizations regarding such things as saving stations and preserving artifacts.

We encourage you to join the organization today, get involved, and help save our history.

Some of these National Treasures are endangered by humans and nature.  Development and land reuse are pressuring local governments to tear down stations.  Nature also threatens stations with beach erosion, hurricanes and severe storms.  Read more about the endangered stations here…
