This report, commissioned by the Task Force, presents findings from a series of meetings that Mike and colleagues convened with labor unions, community-based organizations, fire agencies, and environmental health groups. It was requested as part of the Governor's efforts to improve refinery safety in the wake of the August 6, 2012 explosion at the Richmond, Chevron refinery, which sent some 15,000 residents to area hospitals with symptoms related to exposure to smoke and fire gases.
The report identifies problems and potential solutions in the areas of emergency response, prevention, and sustainability. -- Read Here
