The USMSI provides training in a wide variety of emergency and disaster related skill areas essential in the mitigation of major accidents and disasters.

Our vessels are used for rescue operations, demonstrations, promotions, training, wildlife and environmental research, and our professional and community educational programs.

The USMSI continues to develop marine education programs, conduct research, and  encourage and promote an ethic in critical marine safety issues, improving water quality, restoring coastal habitats and promoting and teaching general marine water safety and responsible vessel operation.
