[ARCHIVED] Humboldt Bay fuel spill exercise to take place Thursday

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services (OES) has partnered with Chevron and local emergency response agencies to conduct a full-scale functional exercise in Eureka on Thursday, June 8. A law enforcement and fire agency presence may be observed in the vicinity of the Bayshore Mall during the morning, until approximately 11:30 AM.

Emergency exercises are an opportunity for local, state, and federal planning and response partners to collaboratively practice responding to a simulated incident scenario, in advance of a real emergency. In the event of a real emergency occurring during Thursday’s excercise, the appropriate agency will issue information to the media through normal public information channels.

The exercise scenario for this simulated response is a marine fuel spill. As would happen in a real emergency of this nature, the Humboldt County Emergency Operations Center and Joint Information Center will be activated at the county courthouse in support of the field response. Media representatives are invited to contact the JIC between 9 am and 11 am on June 8. For more information about the exercise and opportunities for media observation, please call (707) 445-7266.

 Participating agencies include: Chevron, County of Humboldt, Humboldt Sheriff’s Office and Office of Emergency Services, Humboldt Bay Fire and Humboldt/Del Norte Hazardous Materials Response Authority, California Department of Fish & Wildlife/Office of Spill Prevention & Response, Eureka Police Department, California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Cal Fire, St Joseph Hospital, Mad River Community Hospital, Humboldt Bay Harbor District, Marine Spill Response Corporation, and others.
