Main Content
With 16 Federal agency members, the National Response Team (NRT) is the primary national contingency planning, policy, and coordination organization for oil and hazardous substances response. Rather than directly participating in a response the NRT manages a National Response System (NRS), which facilitates our ability nationally to respond effectively and efficiently to oil discharges; releases of hazardous substances, pollutants and contaminants; and to a lesser extent, radiological substances, Whether accidental or deliberate. The NRS provides a framework for coordination among Federal, State and local responders and responsible parties to respond effictively to the kinds of discharges and releases just described and includes four levels of contingency planning that guide response efforts.
