This two-hour course introduces planning and techniques for response to oil spills. It describes key factors for contingency planning, presents an introduction to the National Response System, and summarizes factors to be considered for shoreline cleanup of an oil spill. Response approaches are described with some detail on when and why they can be effective. The course introduces the National Contingency Plan Product Schedule which identifies additives that are available for responding to an oil spill.
This course will be particularly useful for persons responsible for preparing and implementing response programs such as Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plans, Best Management Practices (BMP) Plans, and Storm Water Pollution Prevention (SWPP) Plans.
