The Direct Operation package is a stand alone process.
SECURITY PROCESSING INSTRUCTIONS FOR DIRECT OPERATIONS (DO) PERSONNEL
DO packages are required for the following: District Captains and above elected officers, members involved in the Aux Air Program, and upon Coast Guard Command recommendation on a case by case basis.
Email or submit in writing the request for DO status with a brief explanation as to why the request is being made to Brad Hinken, Operations Training Officer (OTO).
Mr. Hinken will validate the need for the request. Upon his determination, he will respond to those involved with the necessary actions required to further this request or he will explain why the request was denied.
That's all there is to it!
If you have any questions, please contact your Flotilla Commander for more information.
