Emergency Support Function #10 in Miami Coordinating Hazardous Materials Response
SEPTEMBER 25, 2017--The Emergency Support Function #10 (ESF 10) is the framework by which federal support is coordinated with state agencies in response to actual or potential oil spills or hazardous material releases.
Partner agencies, including NOAA, are contributing expertise and experience to the assessment efforts. NOAA's Office of Response and Restoration (OR&R) is providing scientific support and assessment of pollution in the aftermath of the recent hurricanes in Florida and other affected areas.
On September 23, the ESF 10 in Miami distributed a news release detailing the ongoing assessments of the most affected areas to include the ports and waterways of Miami, St. Petersburg, Key West, and Jacksonville, Florida.
