Natural Resource Protection

Spill response:
The management of oil spills is based on the federal Incident Command System (ICS) model. The Spill Team provides services within the ICS system as a part of planning, managing, and monitoring spill response activities. The team provides fish and wildlife information, identifies natural resources at risk, evaluates resource protection strategies, and recommends cleanup methods

Planning/Preparedness Activities:
In addition to responding to oil spills, the Spill Team helps protect natural resources from oil spill by:

  • Representing fish and wildlife interests as part of the Northwest Area Committee.
  • Helping develop and maintain Geographic Response Plans and other response strategies for marine and freshwater environments.
  • Maintaining a Geographic Information System database of sensitive fish and wildlife resources.
  • Participating in oil spill drills.

Please contact us for more information.
