Marine Response Alliance (MRA), an association of the top U.S. emergency responders providing OPA 90 Salvage Marine Firefighting (SMFF), has launched an exclusive mobile app, providing ship owners/operators, qualified individuals (QIs) and the U.S. Coast Guard with immediate access to the MRA's resources for Salvage Marine Fire Fighting as per OPA 90 compliance as well as the ability to report incidents through TITAN Salvage (MRA partner) around the world.  
 
The OPA 90 SMFF app allows users to report an incident, have direct dial access to worldwide offices, and obtain immediate access to a secure password protected database of registered vessel documents, pre-fire plans and certificates online, which can then be saved in the user's offline documents. The user can review MRA's geographic specific appendices, request drills, see salvage news and receive regulatory updates.
 
"With the OPA 90 SMFF app, the user has easy access to immediate response capabilities anywhere, anytime," said Lindsay Malen, director of business development for MRA and TITAN.  "As a responder the user can download vessel documents while headed to a casualty or the USCG can quickly access the plan holders Funding Agreement to ensure compliance. This is just another way the MRA is making these requirements time and cost efficient."
 
The app can be downloaded for free at Apple and Android app stores using search terms "OPA 90 SMFF App" or "Marine Response Alliance."
