A MOCK SPILL HELPS MARI­NAS TO PRE­PARE

Suncruiser West Coast - - Nanaimo -

Eleven mari­nas in Bri­tish Columbia en­gaged in a full-day train­ing ses­sion, with class­room and prac­ti­cal com­po­nents that were de­signed to sup­port mari­nas in four key ar­eas:

1. Plan­ning to ad­dress prob­a­ble spill sce­nar­ios, oil types, roles and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, and cor­rect no­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­ce­dures.

2. Pre­pared­ness by mak­ing pro­vi­sions for response re­sources and tech­niques, sor­bents and spill kits, and train­ing.

3. Response, which in­volves spill as­sess­ments; safety and con­trol mea­sures at the site; ini­tial response (in­clud­ing source con­trol, con­tain­ment and re­cov­ery op­tions, and stor­age and dis­posal); and de­con­tam­i­na­tion, de­mo­bi­liza­tion and the re­stock­ing sup­plies.

4. Post spill anal­y­sis to look at lessons learned, as well as at mon­i­tor­ing and cost re­cov­ery al­ter­na­tives.
