The world economic situation is forcing more and more businesses to outsource services they have for years provided in-house to sub-contractors. One of those services is maintaining an emergency response team that responds to incidents for the company worldwide. OMI’ International Response Strike Teams (IRST) provide professional, highly trained response specialists who respond immediately to incidents worldwide. One call to OMI will dispatch a Strike Team to an incident anywhere in the world via commercial or charter aircraft. Once on-site our team provides assessment, surveillance, communications and oversight to mitigate the incident. Through OMI’ National Spill Response Program (NSRP) worldwide contractor network our team will work with locals and responders that can provide specialized equipment to ensure a safe and cost-effective incident remediation.
