Spill Response Expo is coming!

Less than two weeks to go now, to the Spill Response Expo!  I have just finished working on my slides for my presentation on Tiered Preparedness & Response.  The traditional model of Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 response to oil spills is an enduring and evergreen approach to oil spill planning but new oil-industry thinking has enabled a deeper, more holistic application of the model.  This will help planners, responders and the wider response community to plan for, and respond to spills in the most effective way. 

 

I will also be on our show stand (C708) and looking forward to meeting our members and other visitors to discuss oil spill matters and what we can do to help.
