Oil Spill: Prevention, Preparedness and Response:
The program includes spill prevention, preparedness, and response activities. The Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasures (SPCC) serves to prevent oil spills that have potential to reach navigable waters. Area Planning ensures that EPA and other response organizations have identified resources that need to be protected, and methods to effectively coordinate during response. The Facility Response Plan (FRP) requires the largest oil facilities to have capability to respond to a worst-case spill, and EPA’s spill response program has authorities and resources to lead or oversee oil spill response activities.
