Free HAZWOPER Training February 11, 2017

WDFW, the U.S. Coast Guard, Focus Wildlife, Washington Department of Ecology, Marine Spill Response Corporation, and the Clallam County Marine Resources Committee will be hosting a training in Port Angeles.

This one-day training will teach you how to recognize, react, and protect yourself from the hazards associated with an oil spill. The class will cover hazardous situation recognition, personal protective equipment, decontamination procedures, and an overview of how oil spill response operations are conducted. The class also examines hazards associated with working around oiled wildlife. Upon completion you will receive an 8-hour Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response certificate.

Note: While some of the subject matter discussed is related to oiled wildlife specific hazards, this training is not a wild-life handling or treatment course.

Registre for the free training before February 3rd. Log onto www.oilspills101.wa.gov. Click on “training” and follow the prompts. Register quickly as the class fills up fast
