Lessons Learned Focus Areas Deployment drill design Multi-plan holder/GRP deployments Lessons Learned for Industry Initial assessment/Safety Brief Weather/other problems
Deployment Drill Design 100% of deployments designed with us 100% of plan holders had 2 deployments Plan holders need to register combined TTX and DPX each separately, within the TTX deadline (60 days). Planning with stakeholders during design was key! - Tribes, WDFW, Local Governments
Lessons Learned for Industry PRCs’ & plan holders should do outreach to prepare for deployments – tribes, landowners etc. Be aware of fishing/recreation seasons, access to beaches and properties. Still seeing forms used in drill not found in contingency plan. Use plan forms for full credit. Checklist items must be observed by an evaluator. Pre-boom drills and GRPs deployed in a location we can’t observe won’t count for credit.
Lessons Learned for Industry For larger drills we sent more than one evaluator. Sometimes extra space on boats was an issue. Industry controller/Person in Charge can coach staff but not “walk” them through the entire drill. Drills test a variety of plan holder staff knowledge and readiness. Plan holders need to direct PRC’s to perform actions, not ask evaluators if “this is done” or adequate. Plan holders that trained with PRC’s ahead of the drill had much better success.
Multi Plan-holder/GRP Deployments 2 MSRC shipper drills: Vendovi (GRP), Freshwater Bay (Skimming) 2 Harbor Island Drills (Shell, Maxum, BP, KinderMorgan Worked with industry on several ad-hoc strategies Some worked, some did not. That’s OK!
Initial Assessment/Safety Brief Theme of 2014 - pushed heavily in drill design Plan holders using forms from contingency plan had more success Confusion between “logistics” safety brief and “spill” safety brief This item is cumulative, so remember to cover all items for full credit, and use them in the briefing.
Weather/Other Problems Several drills were canceled due to weather It’s okay to be safe, call drill team to reschedule Equipment maintenance – check condition before day of drill Plan holders/PRCs should bring enough equipment to deploy GRPs as written – anchors, line etc.
