On Monday, March 14, 2011, Global Diving & Salvage, Inc. was engaged by the US Coast Guard to respond to the destruction inflicted to Crescent City, CA by the 8 foot tsunami tidal surges generated by the 8.9 magnitude earthquake near Japan. The after effects of the tsunami impacted the several areas along the west coast of the United States causing significant damage to marine facilities and vessels unable to escape the onslaught.

 
Global has been tasked to assist with the removal of fuel, lubricants, and other pollution threats from several of the stricken vessels that were sunk or severely damaged during the event. In response Global has mobilized diving and pollution mitigation equipment from their two California offices. Should conditions warrant Global has the ability to cascade additional resources and personnel from several other company locations
 
“While this is a significant loss, Global is bringing its variety of assets and people to the project to limit the environmental impact”, said Kyle Watson, Operations Manager, Richmond, CA. “Once we remove the threat of pollution, we will work with the agencies to assess each vessel in order to assist with planning the next steps to take.”
