Oil Spill Response Exercise in Florida Keys: Video
NOAA and the USGS hold regular oil spill response exercises in the marine sanctuaries located in the Florida Keys. This movie shows the response, and the way information is gathered and used to master an oil spill.
NOAA’s Office of Response and Restoration keeps their oil spill response program ship-shape by running exercises every year. In 2005, the exercise focused around a hypothetical oil tanker grounding in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Follow the inter-agency response that results from a massive oil spill in “Safe Sanctuaries 2005.”
