A few days ago there was an “active shooter” near a shores idea facility. We heard it over 14 VTS. Seems like a good reason to raise a MARSEC level, but only locally. Anyone know offhand who’s in charge of MARSEC levels?
"If the Secretary of Homeland Security issues an NTAS Alert, the Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard will adjust MARSEC Level, if appropriate, based on the commensurate risk, any maritime nexus, and/or Commandant consultation with the Secretary of Homeland Security. "
