Abstract
Aircraft are key assets during response and recovery from large scale emergency events. This is particularly important in the earliest operational periods of initial response when road infrastructure may be compromised. Currently in British Columbia, a critical gap exists in multi-agency response to emergency events. While many organizations have emergency response plans, few are coordinated, and dependence on the same scarce aviation resources is common. Prioritization of use of the resources across different needs will be paramount to maximizing the safety and effectiveness of response and recovery operations. The intent of this document is to provide a broad-based Concept of Operations to enable interoperability to ensure aviation resources are coordinated and used to maximum efficiency for response and recovery operations. It should be noted, as further outlined below, this project is being undertaken in an iterative format. Therefore, the contents of this document are expected to vary throughout the project to reflect lessons learned and project progress.
