Through improved training and risk management procedures we can improve the effectiveness of NSBs and minimize the probability of future mishaps. When operated within the appropriate conditions and in the manner in which it is designed, it is often the first resource to arrive on scene and can mitigate the severity of the incident to which it is responding. Additionally, appropriate use of the NSB can benefit the unit and Coast Guard through reduced maintenance, training and crewing requirements.
