The United States Coast Guard National Command Center (NCC) is located at Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, DC and operates 24 hours a day, every day of the year...Always on watch.  Always Ready.

Our mission is to maintain situational awareness of all major Coast Guard Operations world-wide and all significant external events or activities with potential Coast Guard or DHS equities.  We serve as the current operations information and command center for the Commandant of the Coast Guard, coordinating information flow and providing decision support to national-level decision makers; Coast Guard forces; federal, state, and local authorities; and industry to facilitate fulfillment of their responsibilities to the American people.
