Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod welcomes new commander

BOSTON – Capt. Scott Langum assumed command of Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod last month from Capt. Timothy Tobiasz, during a change-of-command ceremony at Joint Base Cape Cod. 

Langum previously worked at U.S. Northern Command in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where he served as the chief of future operations division. 

Tobiasz retired after 32 years of service to the nation.

“It has been an absolute honor to serve with the men and women of Air Station Cape Cod over the last three years,” said Tobiasz. “These professionals were challenged in every way – from an unprecedented hurricane season last summer to demanding deployment commitments ranging from the Arctic to Central America.”

“They performed magnificently, and I could not be more proud of their accomplishments,” he said.

Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod is the only Coast Guard aviation facility in the Northeast. It is responsible for carrying out maritime missions spanning from northern New Jersey to the Canadian border. In an average year, the crews at Air Station Cape Cod conduct 250 search and rescue cases, save 58 lives, evacuate 50 people needing medical treatment, and assist 89 people in distress.

The change of command ceremony is a formal ritual conducted before the assembled company of the command. It conveys to officers and enlisted personnel of the cutter that although the authority of command is relinquished by one person and assumed by another, it is still maintained without interruption.
