    Abstract

    The need for training of first responders, contractors, government agencies, and insurance companies to use chemical dispersants effectively is demonstrated by the loss of opportunities both to reduce cleanup costs and to gain helpful data in evaluating the advantages of using dispersants. The interest shown in a new method of training in the use of chemical countermeasures emphasizes the need to be prepared to use them on actual spills as they occur.
