RE: Red Tide Volunteers needed

Hello Everyone:

One of the goals of the Redondo Beach Water Quality Task Force was to
establish a program to handle the effects of Red Tides in King Harbor.
Our recommendations have led to the City establishing a volunteer
program for dealing with fish kills when they occur. We are now ready
to solicit for volunteers to be on call and assist when the next Red
Tide occurs. Would you like to help? If so, please go to the link below
to find out how to sign up.

At the web site there is a Red Tide Volunteer form that you can
download, just click on the link. If it doesn't work for you let me
know and I will email it to you. Please fill it out and send it to the
Public Works Department. The address is listed on the web page.

The last Red Tide fish kill event in 2005 required over 40 volunteers
to help remove more than 13,000 pounds of dead fish from the harbor.

Feel free to pass this information along to others that may be
