Coast Guard wrapping up environmental disaster training

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii Coast Guard crews will wrap up training for an environmental disaster on Friday.

Twenty members will be at Keehi Habor for response exercises, drilling themselves on how to handle a major oil spill.

To prepare for the yearly exercise, the Coast Guard crews first go through a week of classroom training.

The Coast Guard was at Barber's Point earlier this week so they could simulate an oil spill in deeper water.
