Event description
The aim of this course is to train Kent multi-agency and multi discipline teams in the SCAT process and procedures.

About this event

The Shoreline Clean up Assessment Technique (SCAT) process is now a familiar part of an oil spill response. SCAT teams play key role in the assessment of the scale and scope of a shoreline response programme.

SCAT surveys provide a geographic or spatial description and documentation of the shoreline or oiling conditions.

SCAT will allow for the collection and documentation of real-time data on oil and shoreline conditions in a rapid, accurate, systematic and consistent fashion.

Target Audience

The training is relevant to all coastal districts, Environment Agency, Voluntary Sector and Natural England staff, working at an operational level in emergency response.

Facilitators

Kate Lock supported by the Kent Resilience Team.

Programme

Day 1

Presentations and informal discussion of the issues, incorporating lessons learned from recent major incidents within Kent and beyond. Participants will consider and discuss the operational and personal implications of SCAT operations prior and during a pollution incident.

Day 2

A live deployment to the channel coast in response to an Oil Pollution Report off North Forland and surrounding area to implement lessons learnt from day 1 and to look at the practical element of SCAT surveys with a live reporting chain. This will be followed by a discussion on Command and Control before a full debrief and course close.
