Remaining US Government-led Prep Exercise Schedule for 2004

The remainder of the 2004 Area Exercise schedule for the National Preparedness for Response Exercise Program (PREP)* is as follows:

2 - 6 August- Valdez, Alaska, Prince William Sound
18 - 22 October- EPA Region I, Boston, MA
6 - 10 December- Guam

(*Please note, this schedule is for general planning purposes only. Exercise locations and/or dates are subject to change.)

PREP, which was developed by the US Coast Guard, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Research and Special Programs Administration (RSPA), and the Minerals Management Service (MMS), provides guidelines for compliance with the pollution response exercise requirements of OPA 90. Area Exercises involve the whole response community (federal, state, local, and industry participants) and are designed to evaluate the entire response mechanism in a given Area to ensure adequate response preparedness.

The PREP Area Exercise schedule and exercise design manuals are available on the USCG web site.
