SPEAKERS

Captain Michael Harty from 4 Engineer Support Regiment (4 ESR), in Gagetown, New Brunswick.

Master Corporal Justin Bertrand from 4 Engineer Support Regiment (4 ESR), in Gagetown, New Brunswick.

This presentation will cover the Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) and the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) role in Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HADR). It will outline the variety of CAF capabilities and provide an overview of the steps and procedures that lead to the Government of Canada’s (GoC) decision to deploy the DART. From here, it will focus its attention on water purification’s technical side, touch on the medical aspects and the current/future equipment, Reverse Osmosis Water Purification Unit (ROWPU). The Water Purification segment will cover the capabilities of the system used by DART, the process of producing water in a theater of operations, and finally will outline its restrictions and limitations. Examples will be used from the two most recent DART deployments; the 2015 Nepal earthquakes and the 2013 Philippine’s Typhoon Haiyan.
