Representative image-not actual plane involved

This Saturday, June 15th at 12:00p,. The Oregon Disaster Airlift Response Team, (ODART) will be doing an emergency exercise at Devils Lake in Lincoln City.  ODART will be landing two seaplanes and unloading supplies on the dock at Regatta Park in Lincoln City.

This exercise will be to train ODART volunteers to deliver supplies from inland airports to coastal communities in the event of a major disaster.

The entire exercise involves several coastal communities with this being for the North Lincoln County area.

The ODART team will be working in conjunction with Lincoln City Emergency Management, Lincoln City Parks & Recreation, and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office–Marine Division.

For this exercise, the supplies being delivered from the planes will be donated to our local food banks.

All are invited to observe the event and share with the community. 

According to Lincoln City Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Cassidy Boyle, “This exercise isn’t expected to last long, everything should be completed within the hour. Unfortunately, I will be out of town during the exercise.” 

When asked if there was any plans or concerns about people fishing off the dock or boaters being on the water in the nearby area she said, “I don’t think they are expecting any problems with that.”
