COMMUNICATION AND COORDINATION PLAN
OTAY MESA PORT OF ENTRY
DEVELOPED IN CONJUNCTION WITH
MEXICAN CUSTOMS AND
OTAY MESA TRADE STAKEHOLDERS
April 15, 2010 - Paraphrased for this presentation;
On June 10, 2009, we held our first Business Resumption meeting at Otay Cargo. Subsequently, we held additional meetings during the remainder of the year in order to gather information for our Business Resumption Plan. Based on the information and feedback obtained during these meetings, the San Diego Field Office (CBP) drafted a Business Resumption document. A few months back, I sent out a draft copy of the Business Resumption plan for review. Based on your comments, the Business Resumption draft plan was updated and finalized.
1 Business Resumption Definition
2 Business Resumption Objective
5 Incident Notification, Response & Recovery
6 Business Resumption Plan – First 24 Hours
7 Business Resumption Plan – Day 2 & Beyond
8 Other Issues
10 Appendix A – Points of Contacts & Maps
Develop a workable operating plan of activities required to return the Otay Mesa Cargo Port to normal operation after a severe emergency.
A HIGH magnitude earthquake with an epicenter near the port occurs at the beginning of a work day, causing severe damage to the port and to SR 905 and SR125, effectively isolating the port on the US side. There is similar damage on the Mexican side of the border.
First 24 Hours
Determine damage and operational capability
Establish muster zones for drivers and others in the compound
Notifications to trade stakeholders
Second 24 Hours and Beyond
Bring Port Operations to full capacity on an incremental basis
Determine what importations would begin to enter at Otay Mesa
48 Hour Notice when Otay Mesa will return to full operations
If Partial Opening, Priority to C-TPAT, Perishables & Emergency Cargo
This Business Resumption Plan is strictly local in scope and designed for the Port of Otay Mesa (US/MX) and the Otay Mesa Trade Stakeholders to provide guidance in the event of a port shutdown for an extended period.
