Disaster Response Transportation

Recommended policies, specifications, standards and guidelines to be followed in the development of Disaster Response Transportation Strategies in British Columbia.

The B.C. Disaster Response Transportation (DRT) system is a set of integrated, cross-jurisdictional and multi-modal strategies and methods for the safe and coordinated movement of emergency personnel, resources and impacted persons following a disaster event that results in significant negative impacts to transportation networks.

The DRT system is intended to enable different governments, agencies and stakeholders to align their disaster preparedness plans and activities such that they will be similar and consistent across jurisdictions and transport modes.
