Updating the Mission Coordinator

  • Don’t be afraid to bring safety issues to the attention of the mission staff, and ultimately the Incident Commander

  • If you can handle it yourself, and it won’t interfere with operations, go ahead and do it

  • Realize that you may not be able to cover everything, but with practice and prior planning you will have safer operations in the long run


Safety plans
Safety Plans

  • Make sure that all mission personnel know the risks that they could be exposed to like:

    • Runways in need of repair

    • Winds

    • Refueling procedures

  • Develop and coordinate a written and posted plan for dealing with major safety issues.

    • Incorporate into the overall Incident Action Plan

  • Safety briefings daily or at the beginning of operational periods is a good idea

    • Tells everyone who the Safety Officer is

    • Reinforces individual or crew briefings

  • Make it positive, upbeat, and quick

    • Enthusiasm helps
