Pilots Wanted For August 8, Emergency Exercise
Washington State, Jefferson County: The emergency planners for Jefferson County and fire would like to conduct a low key exercise in Jefferson county on the inside of the peninsula on August 8th. They’ve also invited Clallam county emergency staff and this might become part of a larger aspect.
Basically they would like to have some floats fly out and get the chance to see how to work from the beach with float planes/seaplanes and load patients. More details are to follow, but can’t make this be effective without at least one or two float planes. So the more types we can get the better, but even if only one or two they would be very happy with that to. Even if you are not able to help here, please share it amongst seaplane pilots.
If they have the right kind of boats we might get to do some boat to float work to. This is the first time emergency resources and planners requested floats for an exercise. This is the launch of a whole new phase for general aviation. This is a huge positive shift in how county level emergency leaders and planners view float planes.
We would be deeply grateful if we could get some to come and will have more details to follow. Again a huge first! Please contact [email protected] to register for the event and for further information.
