From the Introduction: "The Marine Transportation System (MTS) Recovery Plan (MTSRP) for Sector Mobile, AL supports recovery and restoration of the MTS. Responsibilities extend to incident and non-incident areas, requiring engagement with a broad spectrum of port stakeholders. The MTSRP may be referenced in other contingency plans (Area Maritime Security Plan (AMSP), Area Contingency Plan, Mass Rescue Plan, Severe Weather Plan, etc.) that have recovery elements. [...] The MTSRP provides procedures to facilitate a safe, efficient, and timely restoration of the MTS to pre-disruption condition. Potential cascading affects extending beyond a local MTS disruption are addressed. Regional or National impacts may be felt when a major port is interrupted or closed with restrictions. Establishing an effective and efficient MTS Recovery framework to facilitate short-term recovery of the MTS, and support restorative efforts beyond the initial response/recovery phase is vital to local, regional, and national economic and security interests."
