Chief Petty Officer Jeffery D. Cole assumed command of U.S. Coast Guard Station Annapolis at Thomas Point in a ceremony there Friday.

Cole, who had been officer-in-charge there since July 1998, relieved Chief Petty Officer Gary M. McQuaide, who retired after 21 years in the Coast Guard.

Station Annapolis is manned 24 hours a day and has a crew of 27. Search and rescue is the primary mission of the station, which covers the area from the Magothy River in the north to Chesapeake Beach in the south.

Last year, the station logged 164 search and rescue missions.
