Every year, Alyeska Pipeline Service Company trains over 2,000 fishermen from Valdez to Kodiak how to respond to an oil spill in Prince William Sound and surrounding areas. Homer residents can see a mock response every spring just off shore in Kachemak Bay, but on Saturday, the Prince William Sound Regional Citizens’ Advisory Council gave the public and local decision makers a chance to get a first-hand look. The demonstration is part of an effort to help Alaskans better understand what goes into planning for a potential oil spill.
