Yellowstone River sub-Area Contingency Plan Overview

Supplementary Environmental
Project – Yellowstone sACP
Supplemental Environmental Project
• Yellowstone River Basin Sub-Area Contingency Plan (sACP)
• Tactical Response Plan (TRP)
• Additional spill response equipment and equipment staging
• Training and exercises for local emergency responders
• Training on the content and use of the sACP and TRP
Boom deployment and hands-on use of response equipment;
• Additionally, targeted grant funding may be provided to assist
LEPC’s or other appropriate party in the region provide training
(e.g., HAZWOPER) to local individuals
• sACP and TRP annual maintenance for three years
Tactical Response Plans
 To provide responders with a pre-developed plan of action in the event
of an incident.
1.) Reduces critical initial response time by identifying the following:
- Staging Areas
- Protection areas
- Recovery areas
2.) Pre-identified response sites take the guess work out of resource deployment.
- Booming strategies on maps with optional driving directions
- Pre-populated ICS 204 forms (Work Assignment)
3.) It aims to protection the public’s Health and Safety and Environment.
- Environmentally Sensitive Areas
- Water Intakes/Irrigation Intakes
- Local, State, and Federal Parks/Schools/Public Facilities
Tactical Response Plans
Tactical Response Plans may be used for actual emergencies or training
1.) Actual emergencies:
- Pages from the document may be copied and sent into the field for
rapid deployment.
2.)Training purposes:
- Familiarizes responders with the surrounding terrain, response
techniques, and procedures.
Tactical Response Plans are created to be NIMS compliant, to adhere to the
“universal language” of the ICS process.
- ICS 204 forms
- Response techniques
- Equipment types and deployment methods
Tactical Response Plans
1.) All parties (RP, local, state, federal, contractor) involved
are able to work off the same plan with the same set of
2.) Ensures allocation of resources to the highest priority
protection sites.
- If no plan is in place to begin with, OSRO’s and field
responders have to develop impromptu strategies,
potentially proving costly to the response.
