2. Response Coordination Center (RCC) Update:


Operations: All Staging Sites are functional. Unified has setup two site offices at the Carrabelle site. Site
Coordinators have completed OSHA training, 29 people graduated from Operations HAZMAT Training
Course and each had excellent feedback on the subject material and instructors of yesterdays training.

Logistics: Ice and water are high priority supplies that need to be maintained at the Staging Sites and
coordinators must place strong emphasis on constant hydration. Staging Areas continue to receive Boom.
Route plan and schedule for the Logistics Facility Courier is in effect. Requisition forms are located in
the hanging box at the logistics station in the RCC. An electronic copy of the Requisition form is in

Planning: Planning is coordinating with Unified and Operations in the updating of the Booming
Contingency Plan. The Planning Section will be identifying the 5 designated Protected Historical
Archeological Sites from the Department of State and ensure that they are considered during the
boom planning update. All plans to date have been submitted for review and can be found in the RCC.

Planning has requested the adoption of a new CGA Emergency Response Team Policy. Any email that
includes an official document, needs to have the Planning Chief copied for official record.

Weekend Planning Objectives:

o IAPs and Flash Reports will be submitted on schedule
o The development of Site Binders to include; daily inventory, received, daily briefing, security-
sign in/sign out logs.

Finance: Be sure to submit all paperwork 214 Forms, Expenditures etc. Finance is also working on the
development of a centralized communication hub for file sharing and tracking.

PIO/ Security: The PIO / Security Officer has established security at each staging site and secured Deputy
Patrols of the sites. The County has posted signs on highway 98 that the Timber Island Boat Ramp is
presently closed.

214: All CGA related personel are directed to forward 214s to Besure that the
Finance section has all 214s and expenses submitted by 15 June.

WHO IS YOUR BACK UP: Do you know who your back up is when you are off? Does this person know that
they are you back up? Besure your function is covered when you are unavailable.

BE AWARE OF WHAT YOU ARE SAYING: When having conversations outside the RCC be aware that
your comments may be misintrepreted.

3. Safety Precautions:
Summer is here and so are the bugs!


Insect bites and Minor cuts should be cleansed with soap and water. Apply an antibiotic cream to prevent
infection and cover with a clean bandage.
If you notice signs of infection, such as swelling, redness, increased pain or oozing, see a doctor immediately.
If you have a severe allergic reaction to an insect bite please dial 911 immediately.

Terri Kanamine is the designated Safety Officer. However, EVERYONE IS A SAFETY OFFICER.
When a potential hazard is discovered:
1. Make sure that everyone else in your workplace is aware of the problem.
2. Notify your supervisor. Unless you are the supervisor; then get going on that safety committee plan.
3. File any reports or documents about the problem.
4. Follow up. Telling someone theres a problem is not a guarantee that the problem will be resolved
satisfactorily. Report it and later follow up to make sure the problem was addressed.

4. Area Update:
A large plume of weathered oil was detected nine miles south of Pensacola Pass. The plume is two
miles wide and goes south for 40 miles. An additional plume of non-weathered oil was verified through
state reconnaissance data. The plume is located three miles south of Pensacola Pass. Response assets,
including skimming vessels, have been dispatched to the area.

Dime to five inch-sized tar balls and tar patties were found in widely scattered area from the Florida
state line to Okaloosa County. Tar ball and tar patty findings are more concentrated in the western-
most Florida counties. Clean up teams continue to be on scene. Heavy impacts, in addition to tar balls
and tar patties, have not been reported in Florida at this time.

Perdido Pass and Pensacola Pass will be closed with the tide to prevent oil from entering inland
waters. Boom will be deployed across each Pass at flood tide (water coming in) and removed at ebb
tide (water going out).

Oil Containment Boom (in feet) total: 331,240 deployed in Florida.

o Tier 1: 159,600 / Tier 2: 123,500 / Tier 3: 48,140

According to the NOAA oil plume model, the oil plume remains 80 miles from Gulf County, and 280
miles from St. Petersburg, with non contiguous sheens and scattered tarballs closer. The NOAA
uncertainty line extends east to Destin. Offshore, scattered patches of sheen remain in the Loop
Current Ring with evidence that it has begun to reattach to the main Loop Current. Trajectories
indicate that these patches of sheen will remain in the Loop Current Ring. Observed tarball fields are
not likely to reach the Florida Straits in the next 3-4 days.

BP claims in Florida total 12,088 with approximately $8,099,535.33 paid.

5. State Update: No New Update

State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC) is at a Level 1 (Full), operating from 0700 to 1800 EDT,
with Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) as the lead agency.\
Conducting daily reconnaissance flights and patrolling shoreline from Escambia to Gulf counties for
impact. Real time reconnaissance reports are being entered into the GATOR web mapping application at


Disaster Loan Outreach Centers are open in the following counties: Bay, Escambia, Gulf, Franklin,
Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Wakulla, and Walton.

6. Federal Update: On June 10, a team of scientists, under the direction of National Incident Commander Admiral
Thad Allen, updated their assessments of the flow rates from the Deepwater Horizon well, prior to the riser being
cut on June 3. Current projections estimate Deepwater Horizons discharge at 12,600 to 40,000 barrels per day.

BP has placed a Lower Marine Riser Package (LMRP) Cap Containment System in an attempt to contain the
leak and capture a substantial amount of the leaking oil. BP has begun pumping gas and oil to the surface. There
is hope that a significant portion of the flow will be captured, but this is only a temporary and partial fix. On June
10, 15,550 barrels were captured from the LMRP Cap Containment System.

Meanwhile, BP is continuing efforts to drill relief wells.
