Commander Terri Jordan
We continue our Crisis on the Coast coverage today aboard the United States Coast Guard Cutter DECISIVE with the ship's Captain, Commander Terri Jordan.
Commander Jordan is tasked with the safety of forty-plus vessels at the site of the Deepwater Horizon spill, until response there is complete. But this is not her first oil spill, Commander Jordan helped clean up the Exxon Valdez spill in 1989 as a Coast Guard Cadet.
Now with a different perspective, she guides the DECISIVE and her crew through the worst natural disaster in United States' history.
