Planning For The Unplanned: Preparing For Marine Debris Response In New Jersey<br /> As we learned from Superstorm Sandy, responding to disaster debris in waterways can be complicated and time consuming, especially when there are multiple agencies with overlapping jurisdictions and limited resources. The NOAA Marine Debris Program has been leading a highly collaborative process to improve national preparedness for response to marine debris after disasters. Goals of this initiative are to work with coastal states and U.S. territories to clarify key organization roles and shed light on common challenges. Join Jessica Conway, Response Specialist, NOAA Marine Debris Program, to learn how the Marine Debris Program collaborated with government agencies to produce an emergency response guide and associated tools for state organizations.
