Spill responders with U.S. Coast Guard Sector Honolulu and the Hawaii State Hazard Evaluation and Emergency Response (HEER) Office participated in training on the ERMA online mapping tool.  The training focused on using Pacific ERMA for oil spill planning and response in Hawaii and the Pacific Islands.  Students worked along on their own computers as NOAA trainers walked participants through the ERMA tool.
