About the event

On June 18th the WCGARP will initiate a full level response at the break of dawn until dusk or all food has been delivered to final destination if that is accomplished before dusk. This is in response to a full rupture of the entire Cascadia subduction zone fault along with subsequent 40 ft tsunami along the coast and 20 foot one within the sound. At start all pilots will report to BLI and Renton DART for short haulers and long haulers will head to Walla Walla to begin operations and hams will start setting up and transmitting along with immediate dispatch of all Red Flights.

As day progresses once Walla Walla is emptied out the long haulers will start helping get supplies out of Renton DART and BLI DART to final drop points. As BLI and Renton DART’s empty out whoever is last will get the aircraft’s help from the other finished forward hub until the last one is done.

Additionally, BCAERO will start flight operations going into BLI as the customs drop in point with then further flights out to final destinations.
