If you are not aware, the Coast Guard is midway to the closing of a nationwide area contingency planning survey. The National Response Team established a workgroup to improve and modernize are contingency plan products and this this the first step to ensuring they have the most robust and diverse feedback from the entire Marine Environmental Response community. To date, we have approximately 500 respondents. The average response time (as tracked by the survey site)has been 18 minutes.
As the close date of 30 April is approaching, we need everyone's help in keeping the "campaign" going and maximizing the number of responses. Meaningful and bold changes are not possible without good data.
If you haven't already, we are graciously requesting everyone to help us out and complete the survey found in the attached MER MSIB. Please feel free to disseminate.
Sincere regards and appreciation for your feedback and support.
