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

Any incident can be stressful. Add to it a natural disaster, and now there is increased complication to the situation. Presenters will provide insight into complex incidents that occurred during the aftermath of a natural disaster, including train derailments and a pipeline release. While these can be challenging on their own, a natural disaster on top of it raises complexity.
This session will explore best practices in crisis leadership, including how to effectively gather critical information, adapt to unique circumstances, and prioritize effectively. Experienced leaders will provide case studies and lessons-learned to present all-hazards leadership best practices.
This session will cover information to assist and enable plan owners to consider and improve preparation for incidents that escalate due to natural disasters and other complicating factors. Best practices and lessons-learned will be covered including opportunities for attendees to share experiences and perspectives.
Recent changes in PFAS regulations are creating new challenges in liability management for the use of PFAS in response. This session will address regulations, challenges relative to testing and waste management, and how industry can transition to a post-PFAS response world.
This session will provide an overview of various types of data captured for a common operating tool, modelling and forecasting severe weather events and developing successful private/public partnerships for emergency planning and preparedness.
Panelists will explore commonly held beliefs regarding “appropriate” implementation of ICS and the reality on the ground. Panelists representing industry, regulators, and the broader response community will share their thoughts on a number of current hot topics. Could this lead to a heavyweight battle between ICS purists and those that are more flexible? Come find out.
In this session you will hear how The Three affiliated Tribes have had great success in significantly reducing pipeline spills within their boundaries through insistence on safe development and responsible operations. Panelists will share some best practices that have been identified through this process. Also highlighted will be initiatives and partnerships with industry that further response planning in collaboration with Tribal/Indigenous communities.
This session will cover two response case studies as well as the American Petroleum Institute (API)/American AOPL developed response guidebooks. Response lessons learned and newly developed guidebooks will help your company’s response program.
