13:00 - 14:45 A 20 Year Aviation Emergency Response Look Back; What do we Really Know? **Waitlist**

 Presented By  Don Chupp

Recommended for: All Aviation Professionals

In aviation safety we require reliable data, concise procedures, and succinct measurements for success. Is it possible to hit these same targets in the seemingly variable world of emergency response? Is there a positive correlation between safety culture and emergency response effectiveness?  In this session Don Chupp goes beyond just aviation accidents to answer these questions, and weaves together over 20 years of USAF, NTSB, and Private Industry aviation emergency response field experience. His front line work with aviation organizations, crew, passenger and ground victim families, and local communities will culminate in a session that identifies common themes, uncovers compelling data, and identifies critical planning factors to take home to your organization.
