The Environmental Protection Agency plans to put decontamination stations along the Florida’s Pensacola beaches as a result of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill according to the PNJ. http://www.pnj.com/article/20100626/NEWS01/6260322/1001/RSS These stations are apparently for decontaminating people on the beach, rather than wildlife. So far, 400 people have sought medical care for upper or lower respiratory problems, headaches, nausea, and eye irritation after trips to Escambia County beaches.
Instead of utilizing FEMA, The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has been designated the lead state agency for responding to potential impacts of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill along Florida’s shoreline. http://www.dep.state.fl.us/deepwaterhorizon/default.htm The DEP claim is that, “For most people, occasional brief contact with a small amount of oil, while not recommended, will do no harm. If contact occurs, wash the area with soap and water.” http://www.dep.state.fl.us/deepwaterhorizon/health.htm
To swim or not to swim? Drowning in opinion-
Florida’s Escambia County Health Department lifted a health advisory on Pensacola Beach on Friday on the advice of a beach official and against the advice of a federal environmental official.
And hours after the Pensacola Beach advisory was lifted, the health department asked for state approval to issue an oil-impact advisory that leaves the decision to swim in the Gulf of Mexico up to the discretion of individual beachgoers. The signs would be posted on 41 of the 43 miles of Escambia County beaches — from the Florida-Alabama line to just west of Portofino Beach — impacted by oil.
But, the EPA is ill prepared for any kind of decontamination stations. A report issued last week claims the EPA is 10 years behind schedule in setting guidelines for a host of toxic air pollutants, according to a report from the agency’s inspector general. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/27/science/earth/27epa.html?_r=1&ref=global-home
I can envision the signs now. Pursuant to Section Stupid MoFo, Subsection 666, and in an effort to curb our liability- swimming in these water may be hazardous to your health. Should you become slimy with oil, have breathing problems or feel ill, proceed to the nearest decontamination station where you will be met with the unknown.
We can only begin to fathom the possibilities:
Station One. Name, Social Security Number, Residence, Medical history. Sign here to accept decontamination procedures and release of liability.
Station Two. Strip down naked. Your clothes, bathing suits, shoes, will not be returned to you. EPA subcontractors begin take vitals, blood and physical samples of contaminates.
Station Three. Administer decontamination procedures:
Wet Blasting begins. Long handle brushes. Non-phosphate detergent. Administer selected solvents like acetone, hexane, nitric acid, etc. Tap Water, Distilled Water or Deionized water. DOT requirements will apply for solvent rinse waste.
Station Four. Apply absorbent towel for drying. Government issues an Orange Jump Suit and either allows you to go home or be quarantined. Maybe they will RFID chip you for follow up.
Station Five. If patient is labeled as hazardous waste, proceed to FEMA CAMP.
Standard Operating Procedures for Decontaminating Equipment can be found at http://www.epa.gov/earth1r6/6pd/qa/qadevtools/mod5_sops/misc_field_procudures/ertsop2006equip-decon.pdf Do you think for one minute that the EPA or FEMA is not prepared to do something similar to the above scenario? Here is a Summary from UNIFIED COMMAND for decontamination procedures for personnel. Double dog dare ya to fill it out. http://www.dec.state.ak.us/spar/perp/permits/pdf/UC_Decontamination.pdf
photo props http://snardfarker.ning.com/profiles/blogs/fema-camp-map. “FEMA also heads up the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP). Designed to protect the critical infrastructure and key resources (CI/KR) of the United States is essential to the Nation’s security, public health and safety, economic vitality, and way of life. ” That sounds all well and good, but conspicuous FEMA activity and changes to law enabling FEMA power were reported previously in this article, http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/05/10/fema-ready-for-flu-pandemic-fire-floods-resistance/. And the fact that,
“The National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645 mandates the establishment of national emergency centers to be located on military installations for the purpose of to providing temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster, according to the bill.”

You do remember FEMA CITY, in Charlotte County Florida post Hurricane Charley, say nothing of the ones that sprang up post Katrina. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/09/16/AR2005091601922.html
The rumours are swirling that plans are in place to evacuate parts of Florida. Rex 84, Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot ringing any one’s bell?
FEMA has plans to evacuate the Tampa Bay area in the event of a controlled burn of surface oil in the Gulf of Mexico, or if wind or other conditions are expected to take toxic fumes through Tampa Bay, according to a report by Maryann Tobin in the Hernando County Political Buzz Examiner. http://current.com/technology/92510180_florida-gulf-oil-spill-plans-to-evacuate-tampa-bay-area-are-in-place-veterans-today.htm
In the event the EPA can’t handle decontamination’s, OSHA stands ready to assist- having practiced in the event of an anthrax contamination.
This HASP [sic, Health and Safety Plan] template was prepared by OSHA and funded by EPA. It provides model language that is acceptable to OSHA in meeting the requirements of OSHA’s Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Standard, 29 CFR 1910.120 or 29 CFR 1926.65, paragraph (b)(4). That paragraph requires a site-specific safety and health plan for clean-up operations conducted under HAZWOPER,…http://www.osha.gov/dep/anthrax/hasp/index.html
The sharks have likely left the area due to the lack of oxygen, making beach swimming safer. The Corexit, Oil Methane and Benzine shouldn’t be a bother as Pensicola’s beach officials believe. Maybe all this is just a practice for a resurgence in the H1N1 Swine Flu Mitigation? Maybe this is a practice for a nuclear bomb being set off at the drilling site? Certainly Methane is flamable.
The Shoreline and Gulf of Mexico water analysis will go on for years keeping the land sharks, politicians and BP busy in and out of the courts. For now, swim at your own risk, decontaminate at your own risk, and have a Happy Fourth of July.
God Bless America.
