The City, in cooperation with the State Fish and Game and the Environmental Protection Agency is offering a four-hour training that includes instruction and safety guidelines necessary for successful cleanup of beach-related hazardous waste. At the end of the training participants are issued a Disaster Service Worker (DSW) identification that certifies them for the duration of the oil spill clean up activities.

The four-hour training is scheduled for tonight, Wednesday, November 14, 2007, from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm, at the Hall of Flowers, 9th Avenue and Lincoln Way entrance to Golden Gate Park. [map] — more info.
