Emergency Management Team & Committee Training (EMT) Sandspit, BC  Nov 25-28, 2014

Emergency Management Training is in high demand for Canadian Airports.

IAAE Canadian Aviation Regulations (302.201) state that you need to have an Airport Emergency Plan and be ready. This includes; an Airport Emergency Plan (302-202), Training of Personnel (302-207) and Testing of the Plan (302-208).         

Emergency Preparedness Consultants Inc. will introduce participants to the roles and responsibilities of being a member of an Emergency Management Team (EMT), how to develop an EMT and how to define the roles and responsibilities for airport staff. EMT participants will be advised what is expected of them in an emergent situation. A discussion of recent emergencies, events and disasters will underscore the importance of this program and emergency preparedness both at work and at home.

The controller working a busy pattern told the 727 on downwind to make a three-sixty -- do a complete circle, a move normally used to provide spacing between aircraft.
The pilot of the 727 complained, "Don't you know it costs us two thousand dollars to make even a one-eighty in this airplane?"
Without missing a beat the controller replied, "Roger, give me four thousand dollars' worth."

imageGroundEffect provides a heliport design and consulting service assisting hospitals, health authorities, private and commercial operations, helicopter operators, airport commissions, and municipalities with the requirements for heliports.

We are very familiar with these standards and have been able to provide the most cost-effective design with the optimum conditions for helicopter service. We have an excellent relationship with Transport Canada and they are very familiar with our heliport work. Services also include the preparation of Heliport Operations Manuals, Corrective Action Plans and Heliport Manager orientation.

Commitment: Our goal is to provide quality design and consulting services using our knowledge of the heliport standards to create innovative solutions that are responsive to the needs of the client, helicopter operators and the public.

imageThe Aviation Sector, like no other industry, faces challenges and uncertainties to maintain future growth. Airport operators are under pressure to provide increased security, efficient passenger and cargo processing, constant upgrading of infrastructure while at the same time providing lower costs to airlines, suppliers, and the traveling public. The advent of new aircraft such as the Airbus A380 will demand upgraded runways and navigational lighting systems, enhanced aprons and bridges and larger facilities to process passengers and baggage. To become profitable and maintain this position, airlines and the aviation industry will be constantly reinventing themselves, forming alliances and cost cutting within an ever-escalating framework. Environmental issues, such as carbon dioxide emissions and noise pollution, are a rising concern for those who live near airports and aircraft manufacturers, airports and airlines aim to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide and noise pollution produced by new aircraft into the future.

We have deep roots in the aviation field, both through NORR Limited and Giffels Associates Limited, and have the necessary skill sets to keep pace with a constantly changing and evolving industry.
Our experience goes far beyond the obvious design and engineering of terminal buildings, aprons and bridges, runway lighting, deicing systems, and automated airport landing systems to include asset management, cost benefit analysis and risk management. In the end, we believe that integrated teams get the job done and we work hard to ensure that we have the right people working on your project team.
Key areas of expertise include: Terminal buildings; Airline support facilities, offices, lounges, parking, retail design; Hold Baggage Screening and EDS Integration; Pre board Screening and Security; Hangars and support facilities; Automated Aircraft Guidance Systems; Airfield Lighting Control Systems (ALCS); Baggage Handling Control Systems (BHCS); Deicing Facility Design, Construction and Automation; Glycol handling and proportioning systems; Runway Incursion Direct Warning Addressable Message Boards; International and Regional Terminal Architecture and buildings; Cargo facilities and Logistics Consulting services; Design Build options; Asset management; Engineering document management, legacy data and support; Aviation Peer Review.
