More than a dozen federal, provincial and municipal departments and agencies and a number of private companies take part in the annual regional oil spill response exercise. The purpose of this exercise is to assemble the people needed to respond to a marine oil spill and to practice the skills needed to contain any such spill. Exercises like these are mounted annually, rotating around the region and have proven to be beneficial in terms of preparing people to deal with the real thing, should it ever happen. This year’s exercise took place in the Rocky Point/Fort Amherst area near Charlottetown Thursday.
