U.S. Coast Guard tests local operator’s response capabilities in Guam
U.S. Coast Guard Forces Micronesia/Sector Guam personnel execute 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 personnel from the Guam-based U.S. Coast Guard Emergency Management and Force Readiness, Prevention, and Incident Management divisions, 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.
