Monday 11/12/07 Schedule – EPA’s Volunteer Training

The Kill the Spill Crew (KTS) would like to alert you to the following training. 

Check back here or for other updates.

The KTS position on the EPA program:  “We highly encourage as many folks to attend, as we trust the EPA process to enable us to attain official status.  We need folks to report back.  If the first half is not successful or doesn’t meet our expectations,  we’ll continue forward to organize a Monday sunset cleanup at Ocean Beach.    If it is well-run, we’ll continue facilitate more EPA-run training sessions.  Our EPA contacts have advised us that this training has been condensed down from their normal 24 hours training program.

Monday November 12, 2007 at 8:00AM – the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will offer a four hour course to interested volunteers who want to be involved in the cleaning of San Francisco beaches.

The certification will only be for this oil spill.
