If there is a large oil spill in San Juan County, would you have the skills to help?

Do you love to work on the water?

Would you like to learn how to protect a shoreline from oil?

Come learn the basics of oil spill response at an Islands’ Oil Spill Association (IOSA) training session!  

Saturday, October 21st, 2017 on San Juan Island

In this class you will learn many of the basic skills you will need when setting oil containment boom and using other equipment to protect a sensitive area in our islands.

Do you know what containment boom is?  How does it work to contain oil?  How do you deploy it?  Ever heard of a pelican hook? (It’s not used on pelicans!) What is oil snare (see below)?
