Safety Zones; U.S. Coast Guard Water Training Areas, Great Lakes
In response to public requests, the Coast Guard is re-opening the comment period on its notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish permanent safety zones throughout the Great Lakes to conduct live fire gun exercises. These safety zones are necessary to protect the public from the hazards associated with the firing of weapons and to ensure the operational readiness of Coast Guard personnel, cutters and small boats. Re-opening the comment period will provide the public more time to submit comments and recommendations.
Safety Zone: Fireworks Display, Trent River, New Bern, NC
The Coast Guard proposes the establishment of a 1000 foot safety zone around a fireworks display for the North Carolina Parks and Recreation Conference occurring on November 12, 2006, on the Trent River, New Bern, NC. This action is intended to restrict vessel traffic on the Trent River. This safety zone is necessary to protect mariners from the hazards associated with fireworks displays.
