EVAC, in the event of a catastrophe, intends to have a radio station aloft allowing communication of damage assessments, road closures and initial coordination of relief actions by critical city personnel while they are being flown back to Santa Monica from their homes in out-lying communities by EVAC pilots.
Closure of Pacific Coast Highway and or the San Diego Freeway would make transportation critical and strain city personnel resources. EVAC pilots and airport neighbors, with the cooperation with DCS, EAA and the CAP will be working together to start and keep the community running.
Important is the planning we do NOW. With that in mind, attend any scheduled EVAC meeting, during which we discuss our procedures, conduct CPR training sessions, and schedule exercises and events.
