Funder of 
Dedicated Specially-Designed Systems for Responding to Oil Spills
MSRC holds the largest supply of vessels, equipment, personnel and other resources exclusively utilized for response to spills and other emergencies. Resources fully dedicated to spill response include mechanical recovery equipment specifically engineered to detect, encounter, collect, store and remove oil from the marine environment. Along with dedicated oil spill response vessels and barges to deliver this capability, these resources encompass entire integrated response systems fully controlled by MSRC.

This means MSRC can respond to an incident with all of the proper resources immediately. In order to begin mounting a response, other OSROs frequently have to wait for resources to “free up” from their primary commercial commitments, if they are released at all.
