  41. Lessons Learned • No advanced team coordination plan • No cross-team coordination plan • Poor comms (how did inbound know?) • No sustenance plan while waiting for AC • No initial manifesting capability • No pre-set AC, AE crew configurations • Where was Red Cross?

  42. What went right? • Timely response – first-hand knowledge • WA DMAT arrived Tues – levees breaking • “Can-do” attitude – NDMS, DMATs • Compassion kept people working – 36+ hrs • Air Mobility units KNOW how to set up! • Immediate work/rest cycles, work/rest space • Great cross-team, medical cooperation • Virtually indistinguishable (except uniforms) • US Forest Service ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!! • Incident Command – provides for providers!

  43. Summary • Initial Arrival and Assessment • Redesigning Floorplan to Optimize AE • Challenges (Friday afternoon) • Lessons Learned, Successes
