Congratulations to the 1st DART in the State of WA.  Our own Alan Barnard and his team of volunteers did it.

Today is historic as Washington State now officially has it’s first Disaster Airlift Response Team (DART) in the state.  This DART is being developed in Clallam County and is a good model for how General Aviation (GA) pilots can work with emergency planners to be that critical difference when the time comes.  Below is a interview with the leader of Clallam County’s DART.
