Oil and Hazardous Materials - Spill Contingecy





The U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service responds to oil and other hazardous material releases consistent with the Fish and Wildlife Service’s Spill Response Contingency Plan (FWSRCP).  Each region and many of our National Wildlife Refuges develop Regional Response Plans consistent with the FWSRCP that outline the procedures we follow in the event of a spill. Implementation of the FWSRCP and the Incident Command System ensures that effective responses are implemented to best protect fish and wildlife resources and their habitats in the event of an oil and hazardous substance release and that there is national consistency for responding to oil spills.  These guidelines are compatible with the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan, also known as the National Contingency Plan or NCP issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (40 CFR Part 300).
