Community Spill Response Workshop

Community Spill Response Workshop

A bit of workshop/project background:  The workshop was conceived several years back following one of the large annual spill drill exercises in Valdez.  PWSRCAC staff observing and evaluating the exercise noted that communities leaders playing along had a challenging time understanding how they fit into the big response picture.  Even though a community leader might understand the Incident Command System (ICS) used to manage a spill for example, there are some unique aspects to spill response, especially in Alaska, that make it different from managing a flood or natural disaster event.  This will be the 8th time/location that this workshop has been conducted and PWSRCAC is excited to extend an invitation to the Seldovia event. 

Those details again:

When- Wednesday, April 26th, from 9am-4pm

Where- Sea Otter Community Center

Cost- It’s free to attend, and we’ll provide lunch and snacks through the day. 

How- We’re asking that people pre-register for the workshop so we have a good estimate on numbers.  Link: CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
