OSRL's Dispersant Subject Matter Expert group answers common questions about dispersants. When to use dispersants? How do dispersants work? How do we test dispersant effectiveness? Where can dispersants be used and for what type of incidents? These questions and others are explored in this seminar.
In an Incident Management System, responsibilities for wildlife response are often designated to a Wildlife Branch within the Operations Section of the command structure and are overseen by a Wildlife Branch Director. This Branch serves as a vital connecting point between wildlife response operations and the wider incident management. Although well-established in certain countries, the potential scale of wildlife response operations and its impact on and needs from the wider incident response can often be underestimated, especially in larger incidents.
This seminar brings together emergency managers from leading wildlife response organisations and from the industry to explore the theory and structure behind the Wildlife Branch, how it has been applied in various incidents around the world and the importance of pre-planning in successful incident response.
