Major Oil Spill Fouls Southern California Beaches

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIFORNIA - OCTOBER 05: Cleanup workers in protective suits work along the contaminated Huntington State Beach, which is closed, after a 126,000-gallon oil spill from an offshore oil platform on October 5, 2021 in Huntington Beach, California.

Crews have been working non-stop in Orange County over the last week to clean up the oil spill that's affecting local beaches and wildlife, but they need more help.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife's Office of Oil Spill Prevention and Response is looking to get at least 1,500 volunteers signed up to help them. You'll receive about four hours of training in order to ensure that you properly know how to dispose of hazardous materials. Right now they're using trained volunteers, but Supervisor Katrina Foley says once conditions are deemed safe, they'll start calling on the volunteers that have signed up through the website.

They've provided an online form for those who are interested in volunteering, CLICK HERE for information and CLICK HERE to fill out the volunteer form.
