Elastec Inland Boom Shop 2018 logo

INLAND BOOM SHOP / MAY 22 – 24, 2018 / Carmi, Illinois & New Harmony, Indiana

This is a new “shop” this year. Several of our past workshop attendees expressed a desire for a more intensive, hands-on boom deployment workshop. Elastec listened, and our first Inland Boom Shop will is designed for spill responders who desire in-depth river booming training.

Cody Harris, president and co-founder of the Whitewater Rescue Institute and WRI Environmental Response, will be the lead trainer at the workshop, May 22 -24, 2018. The three-day workshop will begin with a full day of classroom orientation at Elastec in Carmi followed by two rigorous booming days on the Wabash River in New Harmony, Indiana. The INLAND BOOM SHOP qualifies as an 8-hour Hazwoper refresher course.
