City of Gulfport: Volunteer training

City of Gulfport’s Notes

Volunteer training next week


 Today at 7:42pm

Volunteer training sessions will continue this week along the Coast, according to a media alert being released later this evening.

A first response for health, safety and awareness training on Sunday in Gulfport was sponsored by local elected officials, BP personnel, community organizations and MGCCC.

Pearl River Community College (PRCC) will be working with MGCCC to host training sessions for Hancock County residents.

Currently, the schedule for continuing the basic training sessions beginning May 3, 2010, to be conducted by Mississippi Gulf Coast Community Colleges is as follows:

  • Jackson County Campus – 2 p.m., 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., Monday-Saturday


  • Jefferson Davis Campus – 2 p.m., 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., Monday-Saturday


  • PRCC Hancock County Center – 10 a.m. Monday (additional training sessions to be announced)

These volunteer training sessions will not qualify the volunteers to do cleanup of oil contaminated beaches and wildlife.

Advanced preparations are being made for a major protection and cleaning effort on the shorelines of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. According to reports, Command Centers opened Saturday. For further information, please visit the Web site at
