Station Site Notes:

1996 Station Scituate reduced to a station small after implementation of Coast Guard's non-emergency Search and Rescue policy intended to preclude Coast Guard from competing with private enterprise. This reduced station case load severely. 1999 decided to take Station Scituate located south of Point Allerton and downgrade it to small station. In 2000 Station Point Allerton assumed responsibility for Station "small" Scituate (Station Website).
