Inland Area Contingency Plans are often combined Regional/Area Contingency Plans (RCP/ACP), and the areas covered are regional in scope, lacking localized geographic details necessary for effective oil spill response planning and coordination. Industry Facility Response Plans and Integrated Contingency Plans for rail, pipelines, terminals, and refineries are required to align with the RCP/ACP and consider the resources at risk. In the inland zone, EPA develops Sub-Area Contingency Plans or Geographic Response Plans to provide a greater level of tactical response planning information and guidance on protecting sensitive areas, to assist industry in planning for initial response actions and focusing on the areas that are most vulnerable to oil spills. Speakers comprised of industry and government planners will provide updates on contingency planning initiatives in the inland zone, answer questions, and provide insights into the path forward for Area Contingency Planning
