Description:

Join the Hazardous Material Transport Outreach Network for the third and final installment in our 2022 summer webinar series. This webinar will demystify hazardous material spill preparedness and response exercises and networks. U.S. Coast Guard Emergency Manager for the Sault Sainte Marie Sector Brian Streichert will answer the questions:

  • Who does what on a tribal, federal, state, and local level?
  • What takes place before a response?
  • What would happen if a spill were to occur within the upper Great Lakes?

Streichert will also take us behind the scenes of the recent U.S. Venture, U.S. Oil, and U.S. Coast Guard Equipment Drill that took place on July 19, 2022, at the U.S. Oil Terminal in Rogers City, Michigan. A live question and answer session will follow the presentation.

Guest speaker:

Brian Streichert, Emergency Manager, U.S. Coast Guard, Sector Sault Sainte Marie.
