“It’s been a pleasure working with Capt. MacKenzie and we appreciate his dedication and service,” said CIRCAC Executive Director Mike Munger.

“We’ve worked hard over the years to build a solid partnership with the U.S. Coast Guard to keep Cook Inlet’s marine environment safe. We look forward to continuing that partnership in the years to come with Capt. Lusk and we welcome her to her new post in Alaska.”

GRID System refined in second generation
Like everyone, the Corona virus pandemic has forced us to cancel certain plans this summer.

Regular response training drills with our industry and state partners have been postponed. But that doesn’t mean we aren’t still sharpening the tools that would be deployed in the event of an incident in Cook Inlet.

Safely reducing response time is always a goal. An important tool for achieving that goal is called the Geographic Resource Information Database (GRID).
Committee Chairs, Vice-Chairs elected

A big part of conducting regular Council business, even in times that are anything but regular, is committee elections.

This month, elections were held for the PROPS and Protocol committees.

Choosing experienced, qualified committee leadership is an invaluable part of the continued success of CIRCAC.
