America Continental 2000 accepting monetary contributions, Materials, Equipment and Tools for the cleanup efforts along the Gulf Coast.
Delray Beach, FL. - America Continental 2000, a 501(C)(3) not for profit organization specialized in engineering and technical support for disaster relief is participating in the oil spill mitigation.
The organization is getting good nationwide response from citizens that are willing to help in the cleanup efforts along the Gulf of Mexico Coast, but needs more equipment in order to reinforce and improve the manual cleanup process along the shoreline.
It’s really easy to register. Just go to www.amecon2000.org and then click on the Volunteer Match link.
After an evaluation trip in the region Engineer Raymark Clément, President and Founder and others representatives from the organization observed a lack of proper and efficient methods and lack of specialized equipment, tools, materials and supplies to handle the cleanup. Just shovels and rakes are not enough to cleanup a massive invasion of oil along the shoreline.
In others words, the manual labor is necessary but not enough. Besides that, we are cleaning on a daily basis, but the oil is still coming right after.
The heat and the sunburn are the 2 main hazards that are threaten the worker’s life.
America Continental 2000 is making a plea to collect supplies and raise money for equipment, tools, materials and supplies to support the workers in the cleanup frontline.
A massive oil spill requires a massive response. That is why we are making this plea. We need to deploy all the resources available.
Furthermore, we are proposing to install at least one submersible pump in all the vessels that are participating in the oil spill operations. The more pumps we have sucking the oil offshore, the more of a chance we have to avoid the oil impact along the shoreline. It makes no sense at all, to wait for the oil impact on the shoreline.
We hope to raise enough money to buy all the necessary pumps and equipment to neutralize and mitigate this disaster with all the ways possible.
