IMT TTX 2023

Witt O'Brien's conducted a large-scale Annual Incident Management Team Tabletop Exercise (IMT TTX) on March 28-29, 2023, in Marina del Rey, California.

This challenging exercise tested the interaction, communication, and problem-solving between the Incident Commander, Federal, and State On-Scene Coordinators, and Incident Management Team (IMT) members, including the USCG, California State Agencies, OSROs, SMFFs, the vessel operator’s representative, and other stakeholders in the critical stages of a vessel casualty.

For all vessel plan holders, also served to satisfy annual and triennial compliance as your shoreside Incident Management Team for all federal (USCG) vessel response plans and California vessel state contingency plans. This also served as the last step in Witt O’Brien’s achieving full Spill Management Team certification in accordance with the new California Spill Management Team regulations.

We developed an e-Learning course that covers the IMT TTX carried out in California to allow each vessel response plan holder to participate in the seminar and satisfy their IMT TTX compliance for 2023.

The 2023 e-Learning course will be available by August and must be completed by at least one representative for each plan holder before December 31, 2023.

A circular will be issued when registration is available.
