NJR supported its Incident Management Team (IMT) partner, ECM Maritime Services, to successfully conducted a large scale, in-person and virtual California Tabletop Exercise in Long Beach, CA. This was the first time since the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic that our clients’ personnel came together in a hybrid-VICP to participate in an exercise. Personnel with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife – Office of Spill Prevention and Response (OSPR) were willing to participate in-person to test the IMT’s response skills and capabilities.

NJR supplied several highly skilled IMT members for the SimCell and IMT Planning Section, including creation of the Common Operating Picture (COP) for this aggressive oil spill scenario (see below). The client was able to complete all 29 required California credit objectives and was deemed fully prepared for this response.
