Marine Transportation System (MTS) Recovery Insert photo of representative impacted MTS infrastructure "Our operational capabilities also include developing a national capacity for Marine Transportation System recovery. The nation needs a coordinated, integrated approach to planning for and responding to major disruptions in our marine transportation system, the lifeblood of America's economy.“ ADM Thad Allen, 2007 State of the Coast Guard Address 1

MTS Recovery Plan Purpose: The plan provides an all-hazard operational framework. The establishment of an Maritime Transportation System Recovery Unit (MTSRU). The plan provides procedures for establishing staffing and obtaining port partners (stakeholder) advisory support for the MTSRU. Background: MTS consists of: Waterways, Waterfront Facilities, Vessels & system users (Pipelines)… Each component is complex and closely linked to another. (Intermodal connections: Railways, Trucking, Vehicles & Airlines) Transportation Disruption Effects: In response to Hurricane Katrina & Rita the USCG chartered a Maritime Recovery & Restoration Task Force. The task force recommended the incorporation of MTS recovery procedures. Key Elements for Recovery: 1. Develop a MTS Recovery Plan 2. Establishment of the MTSRU 3. MTSRU be placed in the Planning section in the Unified Command. 4. Develop & Populate of MTS Essential Elements of Information, (EEIs) utilizing CART (Common Assessment Reporting Tool).
MTSR Plan cont. Objective: Facilitate MTS Recovery 1. Mitigate impacts on trade & economy (local & nation wide)2. Establish a MTSRU that functions within the Planning Section of ICS3. Id resources, agencies involved, incident effects & courses of action for recovery of the public maritime infrastructure such as:ATON Federal Channels Communications 4. Prioritize MTS Recovery Operations 5. Identify & Prioritize cargo streams to aid (CI / KR) 6. Coordinate Salvage & Marine Debris Removal 7. Develop, Prepare, Maintain & Track (Status) of EEIs 8. Facilitate the return of the MTS to “Pre-incident” status
MTSR Plan cont. • Applicability:This plan is for short-term recovery (usually 3 - 90 days in duration) the plan is also intended to support the preparation for the transition to a long-term recovery phase covered separately under the National Response Framework, (CI / KR) (ESF-#14) FEMA Long-Term Community Recovery • Incident: Any incident that results in or threatens to cause a MTS disruption.1. A significant delay (Major delay of 3 days or more)2. Interruption or Stoppage of the flow of trade3. A Significant Loss of Life4. Environmental Damage5. Economic Disruption in a particular Area6. Other Significant disruption of the MTS(a Transportation Security Incident, that results in one of the items above)
MTS Plan cont. Establish a MTSR Unit:Build a MTSRU “TEAM” of key subject matter Representatives from:1. AMSC2. MAC3. Maritime Exchange4. Federal, State & Local Governments5. Local Industry Representatives6. ACOE, EPA, 7. USCG personnel: (Waterways & Facilities) *** Add parties as identified by the MTSRU ***
MTS Plan cont. • Develop Prioritization Protocols:The MTSU will assess & develop “Priority Protocols” to effectively balance vessel traffic, set priorities, to allow the flow of commerce. This is only met by the active participation of port partners in the planning & decision process to restore the MTS infrastructure. • Identify Critical Infrastructure:Waterways, Federal channels, (River and Coast)Bridges & Overpasses, Facilities, Highways & RailwaysFerries, Cruise ships, SPV, CFV, Barge, Fleets, ShipyardPipelines • Legal Considerations:Enlist the aid of Federal, State, County, Municipal & Private Agencies, by establishing MOAs / MOUs between the agencies.
MTS Recovery Units MTS Recovery Units are now an integral part of the Incident Command System Organization, developing recommendations through the Planning Section for the Incident Commander, to ensure the rapid resumption of commerce.

Depict trends and percentages of EEIs from the start of a MTS incident to a functioning Port pre-incident (completed in CART). • Appendix F:Requesting Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) HSIN provides real-time, interactive connectivity between states and major urban areas and the National Operations Center (NOC).
