Site Selection

The St. Lawrence Island Zone of the Northwest Arctic Subarea is depicted on the map at left. The green boxes are placed in areas where a Geographic Response Strategy (GRS) has been developed. The sites are also listed in a Site Selection Matrix.

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.
