The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is committed to remaining the
premier federal environmental response organization. The On-Scene Coordinator (OSC)
Readiness Task Force was created to help EPA retain that status. To ensure the readiness of all OSCs nationwide, the task force identified the need for an annual week-long readiness training program. Many EPA offices, including the Office of Emergency and Remedial Response (OERR), the Environmental Response Team Center (ERTC), the Oil Program Center (OPC), the National Enforcement Training Institute (NETI), and the Technology Innovation Office (TIO), have worked as a team with OSCs across the nation to develop training specifically for OSCs.

The objectives of the OSC Readiness Training Program are to:

  • Allow OSCs to strengthen the knowledge and skills essential to their successful job performance
  • Provide a diverse learning experience that OSCs can attend in a single week at a single location
  • Achieve interregional networking among OSCs
  • Showcase regional case studies, current tools, and resources available to OSCs
