50 Finnish Voluntary Rescue Service Leaders Familiarized with Oil Spill Response Online

The volunteer leaders of The Voluntary Rescue Service (Vapepa) are recommended to update their knowledge every three years in Finland. Annually a national supplementary training is organized for them by Finnish Red Cross. The theme is always different and this year it was large-scale and long-lasting emergencies, and we used oil spill response as an example. Altogether 50 voluntary leaders were trained online in two training sessions in February and March.
