GCIMT December Executive Summary
As major clean-up operations across the Gulf Coast are transitioning to return to the National Response Center reporting system, the Gulf Coast Incident Management Team (GCIMT) remains committed to the cleanup of the Gulf Coast and all shorelines affected as a result of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion and spill. This is another important step towards meeting our goal of returning the shoreline to as close to pre-spill conditions as possible while managing the scale of the response to meet conditions on the ground. The Federal On-Scene Coordinator (FOSC) is determined to continue response activities to remove all oil where it is technologically feasible, environmentally beneficial and safe for workers to perform recovery operations. The public is reminded to contact the National Response Center at 1-800-424-8802 to report all pollution incidents.
