Is it realistic to expect you’ll meet all stakeholder needs during a response? It is a question all incident commanders from any segment of the oil spill response community should ask themselves. Lt. Cmdr. Danielle Shupe, an instructor at the Coast Guard’s Training Center in Yorktown, Virginia, had the opportunity to answer that question from a Coast Guard perspective during last week’s International Oil Spill Conference in Long Beach, California.
