The Coast Guard Base in Buffalo is both a lifeboat station and a regional headquarters covering American Coastal waters from eastern Ohio to the Thousand Islands area of the St. Lawrence River. Units here include station Buffalo, Group Buffalo Headquarters and Regional Electronics and Aids to Navigation support units. A separate marine safety office Buffalo handles large ship inspection and pollution control duties. The base also serves as a temporary heliocopter landing field and provides dockage for cutters and body tenders serving theis area. Buffalo was home port to the Couast Guard tender Maple, decommissioned here in 1973, and to the 110-foot icebreaking tugs USCGC Ojibwa (1954-1979) and USCGS Arundel (1979-1982).
