This Response Strategies section provides SEAPRO member companies with strategies and tactics for spills
in Southeast Alaska, both onshore and offshore. This section contains descriptions of the tactics that SEAPRO
can use to respond to a spill and the information is provided by the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC)
Spill Tactics for Alaska Responders (STAR) Manual. It is not intended to present all possible tactics for spill response. The tactics
presented have been developed by the industry in conjuction with SEAPRO personnel and are the tactics they are prepared
to use. Other tactics may be employed, and these tactics revised as appropriate based on operational experience. The
tactics are designed to be used as building blocks for SEAPRO member companies to develop facility-specific response
scenarios in their contingency plans and for responders to develop response strategies for training and for spills.
The technical information can be used to prepare a scenario that demonstrates the ability to recover the facility's response
planning standard (RPS) volume in 72 hours — the key requirement of Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation contingency plan.
The table of contents below is intended as a quick reference to the information provided in the STAR Manual. A link to download the Manual
is provided here.
