T&T Salvage, LLC announced the signing of a consent agreement with the Long Beach Fire Department (LBFD). This agreement permits T&T to include the LBFD's extensive marine firefighting resources in its emergency response network. T&T's network, established to meet United States Coast Guard, Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90) requirements, is available to owners and operators of vessels subject to the salvage and marine firefighting regulations contained in OPA 90. The consent agreement, which is the first of its kind to be signed in California, will ensure a coordinated response and minimize the impact of a major marine fire event in the Los Angeles/Long Beach Port Complex.

In March 2014, T&T participated in a major marine firefighting table top exercise with the LBFD, other municipal responders, vessel operators and federal agencies. Future exercises are planned in which equipment and personnel will be mobilized.

“This is another example of T&T’s ongoing effort to engage the municipal fire departments in the OPA 90 process thus enhancing the overall marine firefighting response infrastructure in the United States,” says T&T's President Mauricio Garrido.
