The Liberia Maritime Authority in collaboration with Global Initiative for West, Central and Southern Africa (GI WACAF) and the International Maritime Organization (IMO), will conduct a four-day national training workshop on Incident Management System (IMS) within the framework of GI WACAF. The event begins on 29 April 2019 and ends on 2 May 2019 at the Monrovia City Hall. It starts at 9 A.M.
The four-day workshop is a unique opportunity for Liberia to have an effective IMS that would underpin the country’s overall preparedness and response capability to oil spill incidents. Additionally, the workshop comes handy in buttressing efforts to finalize and put into operation Liberia’s Oil Spill Contingency Plan (NOSCP).
Every maritime regulatory authority is charged with the responsibility of creating a coordinated-control system that would oversee its maritime domain and respond to oil spill incidents under an effective Incident Management System (IMS).
The workshop would provide a complete overview of the incident management process. It would present an opportunity to test learning through exercise programs – a process that would allow the delegates to validate their new skill sets, while highlighting the country’s need to have an efficient national incident management plan.
