Research Shows Disaster Responders Harmed by BP Deepwater Horizon Clean-Up Efforts

Officer of the Coast
“Members of the Coast Guard bravely answered the call during the BP Deepwater Horizon spill clean-up. Research suggests strong relationships between oil and oil dispersant exposures and acute respiratory symptoms among disaster responders.
It is important for disaster clean-up workers to understand that BP set aside funds for medical issues suffered by civilians and federal employees, including the Coast Guard. The BP Justice initiative is unique as Coast Guardsmen are the foundation of its leadership team, and is committed to helping fellow active duty, retired and veteran colleagues”
