COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - Collier County Emergency Management is ready to answer your oil questions with a new hotline they've set up.

The agency has set up an oil spill hotline to keep residents and visitors informed of what's happening on the Collier coastline.

The need for the hotline came after the agency realized many people were unclear if there was oil on Collier beaches, when they are in fact clear.

"It's just an announcement only recording. We'll give you a little bit of an assessment of the current situation at Deep Water Horizon, and we've given you some websites to go to," Dan Summers with Emergency Management explains.

The hotlines pre-recorded messages will also answer common questions and be updated on a daily basis.

If you want more information you can call the hotline at (239) 252-7755.
