Spill management teams.

(1) Each plan shall contain information on the personnel (including contract personnel as applicable) who will be available to manage an oil spill response. To meet the requirement, the plan shall include:
(a) An organizational diagram depicting the chain of command for the spill management team for a worst case spill.
(b) For the purpose of ensuring depth of the spill management team, a table detailing the names of personnel to fill the following ICS roles or the name of the SMT contracted to fill the roles.
(i) Personnel may be listed a maximum of two times.
(ii) Personnel filling key roles do not need to be a resident in Washington state.

Additional SMT rosters which detail greater position depth available to support the plan holder may be maintained at the plan holder's office and be made available to ecology upon request. If a primary response contractor, SMT, or WRSP is used to fill positions, they must have an approved application on file with the state and they must agree in writing, either through contract or other approvable means, to staff the positions. The capacity and depth of spill management teams will be evaluated in plan holder drills and spills.
(c) A job description for each spill management position, or a reference to the incident management handbook with position description. If the job descriptions are consistent with the NWACP, then the plan holder may reference the NWACP rather than repeat the information.
(d) A detailed description of the planning process which will be used to manage a spill or a reference to the incident management handbook with planning process descriptions and meeting agendas. If the process is consistent with the NWACP then the plan holder may reference the NWACP rather than repeat the information.
(2) The plan shall address the type and frequency of training that each individual listed in subsection (1)(b) of this section receives. The training program at a minimum shall include ICS, NWACP policies, use and location of GRPs, the contents of the plan and worker health and safety as applicable to the role. A combination of training and experience in drills and spills may be used to describe SMT personnel capabilities within response roles. The training program shall include participation in periodic announced and unannounced exercises and participation should approximate the actual roles and responsibilities of the individual specified in the plan. New employees shall complete the training program prior to being assigned job responsibilities which require participation in emergency response situations.
(3) The plan shall identify a primary and two alternate incident commander representatives that can form unified command at the initial command post, and that could arrive in state within six hours.
(4) The plan shall include a narrative description of estimated time frames for arrival of the remainder of the spill management team in state.
(5) The plan shall list a process for orderly transitions of initial response staff to incoming local, regional or away team personnel, including transitions between shift changes.
(6) Plans covering multiple vessels must maintain a list of the spill management team(s) for each vessel enrolled under the plan, and must describe the transition process from plan personnel to the incoming vessel owner or operator's team. The plan must include checklists and documentation to facilitate an effective transition.
Vessels enrolling under an umbrella contingency plan or a multiple vessel contingency plan must ensure that their enrollment includes contracted access to a state-approved SMT or in-house team.
