Prince William Sound Geographic Response Strategies: Northwest Zone

Site Selection

For each environmentally sensitive site selected in the Northwest Zone of Prince William Sound, a response strategy has been created describing the Geographic Response Strategy for that site. The index map at left identifies the sites selected for GRS development.

The Geographic Response Strategies (GRS) and tactics described on this site and in the subarea plans, are NOT prescriptive in nature. They are recommended deployment configurations for initial responders. They can, and should, be adjusted to fit the current situation and environmental conditions.

A detailed description of the site selection process can be found here or by following the link under the Quick Links section.
