Focus area 3.3: Delivering an effective incident response capability

AMSA engagement with jurisdictional partners as part of an effective national incident response capability includes:

  • maintaining response capabilities through incident management and team leader field training programs
  • delivering the annual program of accredited incident management team training including specialist and leadership programs
  • planning and participating in marine pollution exercises in Victoria and Queensland
  • continuing to build and maintain incident intelligence and technical support through relationships, contracts and tools
