Graeme Finlayson attended the Maritime New Zealand Regional On-Scene Commander (ROSC) course in Auckland in February 2015.
The ROSC is in charge of leading the response for a Tier 2 oil spill. The course included a series of lectures and exercises to build upon ROSC’s knowledge of the oil spill response process and provide them with the necessary training and feedback to be successful.
The input from Wildbase for this training included the presentation of the processes and procedures associated with an oiled wildlife response. These include:
Wildbase then play a key role for exercise control where the ROSC and their team must contact exercise control to prepare the appropriate response to a particular scenario. These training courses are an excellent opportunity for the Wildbase Oil Response team to work with Maritime New Zealand. We help aid training of current and future On Scene Commanders and improve the awareness of the wildlife aspect of an oil spill response.
