T&T Bisso Serves Cook Inlet & Alaska Areas

Thursday, July 30, 2009

T&T Bisso Response recently deployed emergency response resources to serve the Cook Inlet and Alaska areas. T&T Bisso displayed its emergency response capabilities by conducting equipment exercises in Kachemak Bay in partnership with Cook Inlet Spill Prevention and Response. The emergency response equipment will remain permanently based in Alaska.

Multiple emergency response assets were deployed during the week-long exercises attended by representatives of Prince William Sound shippers, the U.S. Coast Guard and local citizen advisory councils. Emergency response equipment included lightering and marine firefighting resources, booms, skimming units, a storage capacity barge and a rescue towing vessel.

The placement of dedicated emergency resources in Alaska is part of T&T Bisso’s efforts to meet the Coast Guard’s new Salvage and Marine Firefighting Regulations. The company’s emergency response equipment will be housed and maintained by CISPRI.
