News: Sector Houston-Galveston holds groundbreaking ceremony
HOUSTON - Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for a new facility at Ellington Field, Tuesday.
Sector Houston-Galveston is currently located at a seven-acre site on the Houston Ship Channel in Galena Park. A planning proposal completed in August 2008 recommended the relocation of the unit to Ellington Field.
“The facility will be more efficient, provide better working conditions for our personnel and be less vulnerable to heavy weather conditions,” said Capt. James Whitehead, commander of Sector Houston-Galveston.
