USCG and Area Contingency Planning and Drills

Please see USCG Memo on Area Contingency Planning and Drills

The USCG has relaxed its normal timelines/deadlines for conducting various response planning drills due to the COVID situation.  In particular, all CG Preparedness for Response Exercise Programs (PREP) associated with the area contingency plans are currently suspended and will be rescheduled.  The USCG anticipates PREPs will be rescheduled for later this year or into next year.  In addition, deadlines for submission of Alternative Compliance Reviews have been delayed to 1 September 2020 as are annual area committee reports which are now due based on USCG area and district adjustments.
