U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod (ASCC) is located in Massachusetts in the northwest portion of Cape Cod. Once an active U.S. Air Force base, Cape Cod Air Station covers nearly 21,000 acres. Due to the fact that ASCC is the sole Coast Guard Aviation facility for the Northeast, it is responsible for all maritime safety in that region, from New Jersey to the Canadian border. Centrally located, ASCC has the ability to launch fixed wing aircrafts within 30 minutes of a call. Installations incorporated into ASCC include Otis Air National Guard Base and Camp Edwards. ASCC conducts hundreds of missions, saving an average of 58 lives each year.

Historically, Cape Cod's shoreline is known for its dangerous hidden shoals, causing over 3,000 shipwrecks. Beginning in the late 1700's, lighthouses were erected to warn ships of the coming danger. Today, the Coast Guard runs most of the lighthouses at Cape Cod, though several are privatized. These lighthouses stand as symbols of Cape Cod. Other nearby attractions include Plymouth Rock, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket.
