In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the U.S. Coast Guard conducted efforts to identify additional recovery-related elements and incorporate them within its Area Maritime Security (AMS) Plans to help ensure a consistent approach to Maritime Transportation System (MTS) recovery and trade resumption. In addition, the Security and Accountability for Every Port Act of 2006 (SAFE Port Act) required that AMS Plans include a Salvage Response Plan to ensure that waterways are cleared and port commerce is reestablished as efficiently and quickly as possible following a transportation security incident (TSI), among other things. These additional recovery and salvage elements were to be included within the 2009 updates of the AMS Plans. Further, the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2010 called for AMS Plans to establish response and recovery protocols to prepare for, respond to, mitigate against, and recover from a TSI. To facilitate these updates, the Coast Guard revised available planning guidance, which includes a template for use in developing applicable recovery and salvage response content. Given the importance of ensuring that the Coast Guard has incorporated these recovery-related elements as directed, this report determined the extent to which the Coast Guard has revised AMS plans to facilitate recovery of the MTS as called for by legislation and Coast Guard guidance. This is a print on demand report.
