This article focuses on the reorganization of the U.S. Coast Guard. The Coast Guard elected to initiate its reorganization from the bottom up, merging Groups and Marine Safety Offices into Sector Commands, thus creating a single command in charge of Coast Guard operations in its area of responsibility. Merging Groups and Marine Safety Offices meant changes had to be made to the Operations--Marine Safety paradigm. The solution, replace the Operations and Marine Safety programs with Response, Prevention, and Operations Planning.
