Oil Spill Response Exercise Guidance

As part of DEC’s Spill Response Exercise Improvement Project, DEC conducted outreach efforts with stakeholders to collaborate on improvements. DEC’s outreach efforts included release of a white paper in the spring of 2016, an online survey in November 2016 and two web-based visioning sessions in December 2016. A summary of the survey, the visioning session results, and DEC’s preliminary decisions on key topics were presented in an all-day stakeholder’s workshop in April 2017. DEC considered the input gained from these efforts in the development of the exercise Guidance.
