Coast Guard doing oil spill training on SC coast

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Several agencies are practicing what they'd do if there were an oil spill off the South Carolina coast.

Starting Wednesday, agencies including the U.S. Coast Guard and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are at Melton Peter Demetre Park in Charleston for a three-day training session.

Participants are practicing techniques for how to handle coastal oil spills and their aftermath. They're also making sure they know how to conduct assessments of the shoreline after such an event.

Organizers say state emergency responders and other federal partners are taking part in the training.
