    My wife and I are new to the Auxiliary (sharing this forum account). How or can someone apply for used Coast Guard or Coast Guard Auxiliary equipment? (ie: life jackets, uniforms, materials, general items)

    I read online about a used uniform exchange, but after contacting them, that turned out to draw a blank. They really had no uniforms or equipment, more web site than actual inventory. 

    What we're looking for is a real contact, real form or information link. Something tangible we can take back to our Flotilla.

    Hi there,
    I'll see if I can help. First up, have you two each got a mentor? In the Aux. it's common for a new person to be conducted through their first year or two of membership by a long time member for training, answering questions, etc. Also, what area are you in and what Flotilla are you members of? Things are very subjective from place to place. In some places you can simply get to know some of the other Aux. in your Division and find out about people getting rid of uniform items because they outgrew them or got new ones. In other cases you can even stop by an active duty Coast Guard facility (like a sector HQ or larger station) and ask about anything the active duty guys are getting rid of. In many cases the active duty uniform stuff, even when "worn out" is still useable for Aux. if given a little TLC and maybe some careful sewing.

    Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) can be a little hard to come bye. In some cases you can get lucky and buy from a fellow Aux. or get a cast-off from the active duty but in many cases you'll have to look to buy a new PFD, strobe light, knife, etc. out of pocket, new. Make a point of getting to Flotilla meetings early and asking fellow Aux. about equipment sources. Even if you're not a Division Staff Officer or other Division personnel it's permitted to attend a Division meeting and ask (politely) if anyone is selling or giving away anything.

    It’s a really, really good idea to get with your mentor , Flotilla Commander, Training Officer, etc. before you explore options outside of your Flotilla. They will almost certainly have insight into what you need and a good way to get it. Besides, as an Aux. you’re supposed to keep your FC informed about what you’re doing so if you want to visit a local active duty facility or go to a Division meeting, ask your FC first.
