 Federal Region I
Regional Response Team

RRT I is the federal component of the National Response System for the states of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut. RRT I is made up of representatives from 15 federal departments and agencies and each of the States/Commonwealths. It is co-chaired by the Chief of the Emergency Planning and Response Branch from the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) regional office in Boston, MA, and the Incident Management and Preparedness Advisor of the United States Coast Guard's First District. It meets at least two times per year throughout the region.


RRT I is a planning, policy, and coordinating body which does not respond directly to the scene of a spill or release. It provides assistance as requested by the On-Scene Coordinator during an incident. For a thorough description of both the National Response System and the responsibilities of Regional Response Teams, please visit the National Response Team's website. EPA also provides an online overview.

The RRT1 Website is migrating to a new site.
