Protecting the coast and cleaning up the beaches is very personal to me. - Keith Seilhan, BP Cleanup At BP, we have taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf. We are committed to keeping you informed. " .... Claims Cleanup Economic Investment Environmental Restoration Looking For Oil Crews are cleaning Gulf Coast beaches 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, When oil is Spotted, the Response Command Center is notified, a Shore Cleanup Assessment Team (SCAT) is mobilized and cleanu p begins immediately. Cleanup efforts are being coordinated from 17 staging areas in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, Over 33,000 people are involved in the cleanup operation. Health and Safety Wildlife If you see oil on the beach, please call 1-866-448-5816 and we'll send a team to clean it up. Cleaning Up the Beaches The number of people mobilized to clean up the beaches depends on the size of the affected area. Individual teams ca n number in the hundreds, and thousands of additional workers remain on-call. Working with the Coast Guard, our teams continue cleaning up until the last bit of oil has been removed, a result, in most cases when oil reaches a beach, it is even possible to keep it open. Our Responsibility Our beach cleanup operations will continue until the tast of the oil has been skimmed from the sea, the beaches and estuaries have been cleaned up, and the region has been pronounced oil-free. And none of the costs of our efforts will be paid by taxpayers. Our commitment is that we'll be here for as long as it takes. We may not always be perfect, but we will make this right.
