Marine Exchange of the San Francisco Bay Region

Vessel Mutual Assistance Plan

 

SF-VMAP

The San Francisco Bay Vessel Mutual Assistance Plan (SF-VMAP) is a contingency plan describing actions to be taken by USCG Sector San Francisco, The San Francisco Marine Exchange and Ferryboat Operators for evacuating passengers from a stricken ferryboat. This plan recognizes that such efforts would quickly overwhelm the capacity of a normal Coast Guard response and would require the assistance of nearby underway ferryboats.
