Governor Charlie Crist announced today the activation of the Florida Oil Spill Information Line which will serve as another resource to provide Florida residents and visitors with up-to-date information on Florida's response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
"Florida's coastlines have not yet been impacted by this oil spill," said Governor Crist. "However, understanding the Floridians have a number of questions about the state's ongoing response efforts, the Florida Oil Spill Information Line serves as an important resource for the latest information."
In addition, residents and visitors may call the Florida Oil Spill Information Line for updates on the state's response activities, information on volunteer opportunities, protective tips for homeowners and businesses, and safety and health tips.
The Florida Oil Spill Information Line will operate from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., seven days a week until further notice. That number is: 1 (888) 337-3569
