Webinar: USS BONHAMME RICHARD Fire – A Panel Discussion
Regional Response Team IX will host a response agency panel on the BHR incident that took place in July 2020 at the Naval Station Coronado, San Diego Bay. The health, safety, and environmental effects on the local area from this ship fire crossed several jurisdictions, requiring a coordinated multiagency response. Responders and resource trustees will share their perspective on the incident, response and recovery. The date is March 30, 2021 from 1300-1500 PT (Note: The original webinar date of March 10 has shifted to March 31 and then shifted again to March 30 due to a State holiday for Caesar Chavez Day.)
