NRC, Resolve Expand Firefighting and Oil Spill Response

National Response Corporation (NRC) and Resolve Marine Group announce the expansion of their 1Call response coverage for all vessels trading in U.S. waters. The service offers tanker and nontank vessel owners and operators full, single-source coverage in compliance with latest U.S. Coast Guard regulations for Salvage and Marine Firefighting (SMFF), and Oil Spill Removal Organization (OSRO).

This announcement reflects the U.S. Coast Guard’s final rule in the Nontank Vessel Response Plans and Other Response Plan Requirements published in the Federal Register.  The rule requires owners or operators of vessels trading in U.S. waters to submit response plans naming OSRO and SMFF providers by January 30, 2014.

NRC and Resolve formed their 1Call partnership in 2003 and together offer the most comprehensive response coverage available to international fleets as well as individual ship owners and operators, who trade in the U.S.  By providing a single point-of-contact for all required response services, 1Call streamlines compliance, response planning, and associated administrative processes while controlling costs.

“Since this relationship has been such a great experience, it only made sense to extend our 1Call service to all vessels,” said Joe Farrell, President of Resolve Marine Group.

1Call team assets include response resources such as oil spill response vessels, aircraft, ocean going tugs, and oil recovery and salvage barges, and a national network of depots with equipment pre-staged to meet planning requirements that provide the best response capability. 

“We’ve had our 1Call response network in place for the past 10 years and are pleased to expand this service to all vessels in light of the USCG’s release of Nontank Vessel Regulations today,” said Steve Candito, President & CEO of National Response Corporation.
