Through the Pacific Oil Spill Prevention Education Team (or POSPET), the Task Force offers a toll-free hotline for the general public to report oil spills (1-800-OILS-911). This easy-to-remember number can be used anywhere in British Columbia, Oregon, Washington, and California. When a boater calls this number, the call is automatically routed to the emergency office of the relevant jurisdiction. The Task Force tracks information on annual call volumes by state. (Note: at present, Hawaii and Alaska are not participating in the program).
