General Information

Hosted By: Environmental Response Training Program (ERTP)
ERT - OSRTI
Event Description:

This Combined Back water/Fast water Course exercising the local Geographic Response Plan (GRP) is designed to meet the requests of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Federal On-Scene Coordinators (FOSCs) in their regions. Participants will deploy boom on lakes and rivers; establish oil recovery sites; provide protection to sensitive areas and shoreline with boom; operate boats on lakes and rivers; install dikes, dams and filter fences on streams; and install French drains and cut-off walls.

All this will be based on the selection of course materials to be presented.
