Photo of staffer Jeremy Robida on board an oil spill response barge during an exercise. Exercises have been held in both Valdez and Cordova to allow local fishing vessels to train with the new equipment. The incoming tug and barge crews must show that they can perform various maneuvers and tactics required for deploying oil spill cleanup boom. Council staff have been on hand to observe many of the exercises and demonstrations of the new vessels and equipment.
