The ICG´s location

The Icelandic Coast Guards headquarters are located in the National Rescue Centre at Skógarhlíð 14, in Reykjavík.

The ICG´s administrative offices, Hydrographic Department, Bomb Disposal Unit, logistics and Operations Centre are all located here. The National Rescue Centre is comprised of the ICG, the Capital District Fire and Rescue Service, the Icelandic Association for Search and Rescue, Emergency-Alert 112, the Police National Communication Centre, the Police Vehicle Control and Maintenance Centre and the Civil Protection Department of the National Commissioner of the Police. There is an advantage in having all these emergency response organisations together in the same location, as it makes co-operation so much easier. The ICG operates the Maritime Traffic Service in the Rescue Centre alongside the ICG Operations Centre, in accordance with a service contract made with the Icelandic Maritime Administration.

The ICG Aviation Department is located at Reykjavik Airport, where pilots, aviation mechanics and other personnel of the department are based.

At Faxagarður quay in Reykjavík Harbour, ICG personnel also man a security post at which ICG employees are responsible for the security of the ICG patrol and hydrographic vessels, moored at the quayside.
