San Juan County Emergency Services and IOSA received a grant this year for the following equipment and training from Washington State Dept. of Ecology
The equipment we will be receiving includes:
- Two gas meters for monitoring air quality around an oil spill (adding to the two we already have);
- New marine VHF radios;
- New Ipads with navigation software for our two main response vessels (Sea Goose and Green Heron);
- Maintenance on the four yellow oil spill equipment trailers we received from Ecology about eight years ago.
Our False Bay drill on May 20th, 2017, is also paid for through this grant.
