The SFLC core workforce is comprised of approximately 1,800 employees geographically distributed across the U.S., with approximately 600 civilians, 550 military and 50 reservists, augmented by some 300 contractors. The CG Yard, a subordinate command, has an additional workforce of over 650 people.
Establishment. The SFLC was established on Jan. 26, 2009 at the Coast Guard Yard at Curtis Bay in Baltimore, MD. It was formed by uniting once divided parts of the Coast Guard’s fleet mission support system. The main building blocks of the SFLC include the former Engineering Logistic Center (ELC) in Baltimore; the Naval Engineering Divisions of the former LANT and PAC Area Maintenance and Logistics Commands (MLCs); and the Coast Guard Yard.

are to protect the public, the environment, and U.S. economic and security interests in any
maritime region in which those interests may be at risk, including international waters and
America's coasts, ports, and inland waterways.
