First responders basic training was held in the Killybegs Coast Guard Station, fantastic facility and a tribute to the local community who have supported the vital service for so many years through volunteer cover. We had a very keen group of people including two vets who will be valuable team members in the event of a spill. The variety of skills required in a spill is not limited to those who are trained to work with animals but tradespeople like carpenters, plumbers, electricians will also be a vital part of any response.
