"I would like to thank the oil spill team with their performance last week during the Prep Drill. I thought everyone did an exceptional job while dealing with a difficult scenario. This is by far the biggest drill that I have been involved with. We had a full blown equipment deployment that included fire, heavy rescue, oil spill and security equipment. We utilized the IAP software and produced an accepted Incident Action Plan the first day."
