PPR Mission Statement
The mission of the Prevention Preparedness and Response Program is to protect public safety, public health and the environment by preventing and mitigating the effects of oil and hazardous substance releases from both regulated and unregulated sources and ensuring their cleanup through government and industry planning and rapid response.

Program Organization
The Division of Spill Prevention and Response recently underwent a reorganization, resulting in the Prevention, Preparedness, and Response (PPR) program, combining the prevention program (previously, Industry Preparedness) with our response program (previously,Prevention and Emergency Response).

"I am happy to announce the Alaska Division of Spill Prevention and Response (SPAR) has reached a milestone in our efforts to improve the services we offer. We now have one program - The Prevention, Preparedness, and Response (PPR) program that will provide many of your SPAR related needs."
-Kristin Ryan, Director, Spill Prevention and Response Division


The State is divided into three Response Centers with regional response teams based in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau and smaller satellite offices in Kenai and Valdez. Each regional response team has a pre-designated State On-Scene Coordinator (commonly referred to as SOSC), who represents the state during spills in that portion of the state.
