Site Selection

For each of the GRS sites selected in the Beaufort Sea Zone of the North Slope Alaska Subarea, a response strategy will be created describing the Geographic Response Strategy for that site. The index map at left identifies the GRS selected sites.

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.
