Since 2006, the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) has worked with the network of district Passenger Vessel Safety Specialists  to address potential shortcomings in mass rescue operations.  In 2007, the USCG completed a Mass Rescue Operations Scoping Study (MROSS) that identified the largest potential response gaps were associated with USCG response to significant numbers of survivors from a passenger vessel casualty. This project built on the MROSS by validating the most likely mass rescue incident scenarios based on incidents since 2003, examining  response activities (including response gaps), and defining functional requirements of potential response interventions. This report presents the background methodology and results, and lists conclusions and recommendations.
