Call for DART Volunteers

The Lincoln Regional Aviation Association (LRAA) is sponsoring a Disaster Airlift Response Team (DART) that will provide volunteer services for emergencies within our community.

These services range in air transportation for civilian, medical, emergency personnel as well as transporting food, medical supplies and material required to handle catastrophic events.

However, there is still much to do.

The Lincoln DART Team is still under development and the need for additional personnel / volunteers is greater than ever. Help is needed in “material and passenger” management, “Set-up / take down” crews and ramp personnel.

If you would like more information or to participate as part of this important team, please check out their web page.
