This plan has been prepared to meet all planning requirements for response to hazardous substances and oil spills, including those of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA), Federal Response Plan (FRP) and the National Contingency Plan (NCP). To facilitate use during a response, this Plan contains a Base Plan, which is the Region IV Regional Contingency Plan (RCP), and several Annexes, which when combined with the Base Plan make up the Area Contingency Plan (ACP). The Base Plan of RCP is general in nature, presents information and policies that are not subject to frequent change and outlines the standard strategy to be employed in responding to releases of oil and hazardous substances. The concepts of administration, logistics, direction and control are also presented. The Base Plan serves as the foundation for the Annexes, Appendices, Tabs and Checklists included in this Plan.
