Site Selection

The list of sites below contains links to the GRS’ developed for the East B Zone. Of these 20 sites 6 were adapted from the Selendang Ayu Grounding deployments. A survey team visited 7 sites around Unalaska and Dutch Harbor to develop the strategies with information collected on the ground. The remaining sites had to be developed using satellite and aerial imagery and charts and maps. These have been reviewed, edited and approved by the entire workgroup and are being forwarded to the Subarea Committee for inclusion in the Subarea Plan during the next update of the plan.

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.
