On September 17, 2019, the staff of the Civil Defence Commisssion commenced a two-day Incident Command System (ICS) training which was facilitated by Apache.

Apache is a Houston-based oil and gas exploration and upstream production company. One of the world’s top independent company with global operations (namely in Egypt, USA Canada, United Kindom and Suriname) is a key stakeholder of the Civil Defence Commission (CDC) since the two entities share a charge public/private partnership due to transborder jurisdiction interests.

In light of the boom in the oil and gas sector, capacity building of the staff of the CDC is critical at this juncture as part of the parednesses and response (P&R) plan, in the event of an oil spill.

The facilitators of the training are Steve Daigle, HSE & Regulatory Manager and Dan Lauer

Manager Crisis & Emergency Response and HSSE Leadership and Development, both of the Suriname operations.
