an SPCC Plan that describes oil handling operations, spill prevention practices, discharge or drainage controls, and the personnel, equipment and resources at the facility that are used to prevent oil spills from reaching navigable waters or adjoining shorelines. Although each SPCC Plan is .   This guide and its companion guide, Characteristic Coastal Habitats: Choosing Spill Response Alternatives, are based on information contained in the manual, Environmental Considerations for Marine Oil Spill Response, published in by the American Petroleum Institute, NOAA, the U.S. Coast Guard, and the U.S. Environmental Protection manual is available for purchase .

Typically, geophysical flow patterns, ocean turbulence, complex chemical processes, ecological setting, fisheries activities, economics of land use, and engineering constraints on response equipment all need to be considered. When a Large Chemical Spill has occurred: • Immediately notify the designated official and Emergency Coordinator. • Contain the spill with available equipment (e.g., pads, booms, absorbent powder, etc.). • Secure the area and alert other site personnel. • Do not attempt to clean the spill unless trained to do so.   Here is a quick guide to many of the most commonly used tools and resources that NOAA OR&R offers for oil spill responders and planners. General emergency responders may also want to refer to the quick list of tools and resources for chemical spill response.
