What's New?

Contingency Planning

Effective Friday, September 14, 2018, the Alaska Regional Contingency Plan and four Area Contingency Plans have replaced the old Unified Plan and 10 subarea contingency plans. The four new Area Contingency Plans combine several of the previous 10 subareas.  These Area Contingency Plans include all of the information from the former subarea plans. As an initial step, the content within the plans has been repackaged into the new plan structure; however, the information has not changed. Operational and planning areas for individual operations may extend into more than one Area Plan. More information about this planning structural change, including a map of the new Areas and the newly adopted regional and area contingency plans, is available: Oil and Hazardous Substance Response Plans.

 NRT Spill Response Survey

The United States Coast Guard, along with its National Response Team (NRT) partners, is requesting anyone with preparedness and response experience to complete a national online survey, available here. The NRT has established a workgroup charged with improving and modernizing our national area contingency planning products. It is important to obtain feedback from all parties that have a nexus to the National Response System. This includes all facility and vessel response plan holders, as well as anyone with experience in any oil or hazardous substance spill response or planning capacity. To ensure feedback is robust and diverse, all private, non-profit, local, state, tribal and federal stakeholders with an interest in this topic participate in the survey are strongly encouraged to participate. Please disseminate as widely as possible.
