We wanted to let everyone know that you can now find the Refugio Incident After Action Review and Lessons Learned report on our website. This report summarizes the discussions that took place during a workshop in July 2015 at UC Davis. The goal of this workshop was to highlight what key responders believed went well during the Refugio Spill response, as well as what the group recommended as needing additional action.
We sincerely thank everyone that took part during the Refugio Incident and during the workshop. It is only through practice and honest evaluation that we can develop a better response to future events. And it is only with the knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm of such a great Network that we can save as many animals as we can from oil spills. Each of you played a critical part in this response. Thank you!
Kyra Mills- Parker (Deputy Director, Field Ops) and Curt Clumpner (Deputy Director, Care Ops)
