The Washington Airborne Disaster Response Team is forming and you can be a part. We are creating a list of GA pilots willing to be of assistance in the case of a regional disaster. Small aircraft are an agile, quickly dispatchable resource that could service localities isolated by fires, landslides, earthquakes, volcanoes, etc. that might occur here in our region. We’re coordinating with the Oregon Pilots Association which is doing the same thing. We anticipate transporting essential personnel (doctors, nurses, bridge engineers) and essential supplies (food, medicine).
This program has proven itself in California, and elsewhere. To see more about California’s program, follow this link: California DART.
If you are willing to be listed and consider a request for help please send an email to George Steed with the subject line: Washington DART. I’ll send a form to be filled out. We may never be called but it’s always better to be prepared.
