The Coast Guard joins hands to protect sea and island environment

Protecting natural resources, preventing and combating environmental pollution ... is one of the functions and tasks assigned by the Party, State and Army to the Vietnam Coast Guard.

With its awareness and responsibility in protecting the marine environment, the Vietnam Coast Guard has constantly improved its efficiency in contributing to the community's living environment. During sea voyages, officers and soldiers on ships always raise their awareness of protecting the marine environment, collecting and disposing of garbage at the prescribed place.

Every year, in response to the World Ocean Day and the Vietnam Sea and Islands Week, officers and soldiers of the Coast Guard always take the initiative to join local authorities, unions, armed forces and local people to carry out the campaign "Clean the sea", during which they collected and destroyed tens of tons of waste.

Always present whenever incidents occur

The High Command of Coast Guard Region 1 is responsible for managing a wide water area, with the coastline of about 763 km, belonging to 10 provinces and cities from the mouth of Bac Luan river (Quang Ninh province) to the island of Con Co (Quang Tri province). Parallel to economic development, the preservation and protection of the marine environment is a challenging issue for the authorities and people of coastal localities.

Major General Nguyen Van Thang, Political Commissar of the High Command of Coast Guard Region 1, said that in addition to the task of patrol, inspection, control, law enforcement at sea, the protection of the marine environment was always effectively implemented by staff and soldiers of the Coast Guard Region 1, which were recognized and highly appreciated by the local authorities and people. The soldiers on the Coast Guard vessels well understand that every time they go out to sea they will have to try do their best to preserve and protect the marine environment.

One of the specific examples of the High Command of Coast Guard Region 1’s effort to protect the environment in recent years was the rescue of a tanker named Hai Ha. The Coast Guard vessel 4036 quickly approached the Hai Ha 18 tanker with a tonnage of 3,000 tons that was in fire and successfully save this ship. If this tanker was not rescued timely, the consequences for the marine environment would have been serious.

Last year, the factory of Phu Lam Import and Export Co., Ltd., in Hai An district, Hai Phong city had a big fire at a 6,000sq.m workshop that contained fuel, raw materials such as gasoline, plastic beads, solvent blended .... Upon detecting the fire, the Coast Guard Region 1 dispatched 30 officers and soldiers with military medical forces, ambulances, and firefighting equipment to the area where the fire occurred to cooperate with other forces to move nearly 100 drums containing chemicals and goods to a safe location.

Besides these activities, young staff of the Coast Guard forces also propagated to the people about the awareness of protecting the marine environment, maintaining general hygiene to make the environment greener - cleaner – more beautiful, contributing to improvement of the quality of life for all communities.

With specific activities in recent years, the Coast Guard Region 1’s cadres and soldiers have joined the Party committees and local authorities to deal with consequences of natural disasters and fires; foster love of the country’s sea and islands, reminding people to live more responsibly in preserving the environment, creating a green - clean - beautiful landscape for the marine and local coastal environment. This is also one of the duties of each Vietnamese Coast Guard officer and soldier to contribute to socio-cultural development in localities under its management.
