Base Access Procedures (Sponsor and Visitor Responsibilities)

The Coast Guard Island Sponsor fills out the Base Access Request Form, saves it, and emails as an attachment to D11-PF-BaseAccess@uscg.mil.

If the Sponsor sends the request with at least one working day's notice, it will be reviewed and the visitor will be added to the access list.Be advised that if the request is sent after 1500, the names will not be added to the base access list until 0700 the next day or if on Friday, the following Monday.

If it is less than 24 HRS and during the normal FPCON, a phone verification is required at the time of visitor's arrival in lieu of a physical escort from the gate. The VISITOR tells the main gate the CG Sponsor's name, phone number, and their destination. The GUARD calls that number, confirms/notifies, allows access. Meanwhile, D11-PF-BaseAccess@uscg.mil should have an e-mail with visitor's full name for accountability (Sponsor's responsibility). 

PLEASE insure that the VISITOR has all the information and you are available to answer the call so there is no backup at the Main Gate, especially during the heavy flow hours of 0600 to 0800.
