Alaska Geographic Response Strategies: Home
- A draft GRS Site Evaluation form has been uploaded for review. We welcome your input, which should be sent to email@example.com. The most current version of this form will remain available in Quick Links section of this page. Thank you for helping to improve its usefulness. (11/10/15)
For the purposes of oil spill planning, Alaska has been divided into ten regions, or Subareas. GRS have been developed within each Subarea by workgroups under the Subarea Committee's governance. GRS workgroup participants include State and Federal resource trustee agencies, local spill response experts, and local stakeholders. Public involvement is essential to ensure sites selected and the strategies developed reflect the environmental protection priorities of local communities, stakeholders, and resource users. Links to GRS within each subarea are shown to the left.
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.
