U.S. Coast Guard tests local operator’s response capabilities in Guam
Lt. Henry Dunphy, chief of the U.S. Coast Guard Forces Micronesia/Sector Guam Emergency Management and Force Readiness (EMFR) division, evaluates a Government-Initiated Unannounced Exercise (GIUE) at the Harbor of Refuge on Guam testing Supreme Petroleum, a key player in Guam's petroleum industry, and their contracted responder OSROCO, on May 1, 2024. The drill, run and evaluated by Guam-based U.S. Coast Guard EMFR, Prevention, and Incident Management divisions personnel, simulated an oil spill scenario to guarantee safety, appropriate notifications, and prompt response actions. The primary mission was to evaluate the facility's ability to execute response plans swiftly and efficiently under real-world conditions, which they met satisfactorily.
