The First responders training is free of charge. By partaking in the training you agree to being part of a network of responders who will try to make themselves available in the event of a spill and your name will be added to the local/national procedure and ultimately the national plan.
The day will consist of a morning of presentations on topicssuch as how oil effects birds, setting up a facility/collection point, capture, etc. As the major wildlife victims in a spill are birds we will be concentrating on that area. In the afternoon we will concentrate on practical items to become familiar with equipment etc required in the first few days of a spill.
Due to the nature of birds and the effects of oil on them it is vital that we respond quickly and efficiently to a spill - this is the only way we can offer the victims a chance of recovery.
