Brent Meldrum, CEO, Coastal Transport of Washington ; In our development of the Transportation Recovery Annex as part of the Regional Catastrophic
Preparedness Grant Project, we worked with providers of transportation to vulnerable
populations. We worked with the Community Transit Association of the Northwest (CTA-NW)
which has been actively working on their goal of integrating with the emergency management
network in the state. This presentation will help further that goal by: 1. Providing an overview of
our Transportation Recovery Planning in the Puget Sound Area and what this planning means to
the rest of the state; 2. Providing an overview of the issues, lessons learned and best practices
concerning emergency transportation for vulnerable populations and persons with special needs;
3. Introducing CTA-NW, its mission, resources, contacts and capabilities; 4. Discussing planning
considerations for special needs populations in evacuation and transportation recovery; 5.
Providing the opportunity to build partnerships among PIEP Conference attendees and the CTA-NW.
