USA – Vessel Response Plans – Extension of 1-Call Alaska Coverage

5th January 2016

Further to Notice to Members No.6 2015/2016 it will be recalled that the NRC/Resolve joint venture 1-Call Alaska provides APC coverage for non-tank vessels transiting the Aleutian Islands. It has recently been announced that 1-Call Alaska’s area of coverage has been extended such that they are now able to provide APC services for non-tank vessels in the Bristol Bay subarea and Kodiak Island subarea as well as the Aleutian Islands subarea of the Western Alaska COTP zone.

Details of the NRC/Resolve announcement can be found here and the latest version of the 1-Call Alaska Operation Guidelines can be found here.

The feasibility of providing APC services to tank vessels in these areas is still under consideration by 1-Call Alaska and it is emphasised that their services are currently limited to non-tank vessels.

Members with any questions on APCs or any other issues relating to vessel response plans in the United States should contact the Managers.
