1SR Bridge Program

The District 1 Southern Region (D1SR) Auxiliary Bridge Program has two main parts:

  1. Bridge Discrepancy Reports - These are reports of problems observed by any BQ Auxiliary member, whether observed while out on patrol, during a day out fishing, or even while just passing a bridge while ashore.
  2. Bridge Verifications - Bridge Verifications  are a comprehensive review and report of a bridge done by qualified Aids Verifiers, checking to see that the bridge meets the requirements of its Coast Guard permit and or documenting what is present.

All BQ Auxiliary members are encouraged to report any discrepancies on bridges that they pass to the Coast Guard via the D1SRs NS 7055 Bridge Report Form. These reports allow the staff at the Coast Guard Bridge Branch to contact the bridge owner and get the discrepancy fixed.

While any member should report bridge discrepancies, Bridge Verifications are done only by AV qualified members.

On-Line Bridge Discrepancy Reporting Procedure

The D1SRs NS 7055 Bridge Report Form is an Excel fillable form which is completed and forwarded to the D1SR ADSO-NS-Bridges, who reviews the information, enters it into the D1SR Aux Bridge Spreadsheet and forwards the information to the CG Bridge Office.

In addition, all District 1SR bridges are listed in the online read only D1SR Aux Bridge Spreadsheet. Members can see the details for any bridge, as well as the most recent history.

For system security and compliance with the Privacy Act, the documents are located on the D1SR Website and require member only login.

Guidance for reporting bridge discrepancies and verifications
