Arrange for liaison at local level throughout New Zealand, to ensure that controllers and the drivers of potential rescue vehicles are equipped with the same maps, preferably overprinted with an easy reference grid.

The Airways Corporation is not the authority with the responsibility for organisation of Airport Emergency Programmes, with the single exception of Taupo Airport. At Taupo we are contracted to the airport licensee to manage the service. I can confirm that the Taupo emergency services are all issued with the same grid map by our local manager. * You will need to make your recommendation 028/92 to the correct authorities, that is to say the aerodrome licensee.
