The Regional Response Team (RRT) is a key component of the U.S. federal government’s commitment to ensure effective preparedness and response to oil and chemical incidents affecting human health and safety, as well as the environment.

As described in the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP, 40 CFR part 300), the RRTs are responsible for planning and coordination of regional preparedness, as well as planning and coordination of response actions in support of the Federal On-Scene Coordinator (Federal OSC).

RRTs function in two ways – as a standing team and as an incident-specific team. The roles and responsibilities of the RRTs are outlined in §300.115 of the NCP.
