Op Lentus - Aviator Elsa Gilroy Air Operations Support Technician

Video / December 13, 2021


On November 15th I came into work, usual work day, I was asked to board the 906 the third rescue Cormorant and go out to Agassiz to help with the evacuation. A SAR Tech and I got dropped on the ground in Agassiz our task was to get an accurate count of how man y people needed evacuation after triaging and organizing people we briefed them on a safe approach to the aircraft, escorted them to the aircraft and assisted them in getting aboard, and making sure people got buckled up.

A usual day, I’m a support staff here so I don’t go operational but because of my background in fire, I’ve been a firefighter in Comox for 10 years so I was asked for that reason to provide a bit of extra hands on the ground.
