This website is being used to assist the workgroup in the development of Geographic Response Strategies (GRS) to protect sensitive coastal environments in the Southeast Alaska Subarea from marine oil spills. For this project the Southeast Alaska Subarea has been divided into nine Geographic Response Zones, as shown on the map to the left.
A workgroup has been formed to develop GRS for the Southeast Alaska Subarea. Participants include Local, State and Federal resource trustee agencies and governments, local spill response experts, oil spill contingency plan holders and local individuals with knowledge of the area.
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.
