The Workshop was made available with support from the Massachusetts Environmental Trust to train local responders to prepare and respond to oil spills in Buzzards Bay. Scott Metzger, Clean Harbors Senior Vice President of Emergency Services, was the guest lecturer. The objective of the workshop was to test the Massachusetts Geographic Response Plans for oil spills in the region. It also offered opportunities for responders to train on actual oil spill response equipment owned and maintained by the Academy for training and emergency preparedness. This equipment is also utilized to train cadets who major in Marine Safety and Environmental Protection (MSEP) and Emergency Management.
