It was founded sixteen years ago during hurricane katrina as a way for aviation businesses to use their expertise to organize relief missions in totally organized one hundred and fifty five flights airlifting a quarter of a million pounds of critical supplies for hurricane katrina survivors. Subsequently bridges helped organize g pilots to fly relief flights for other hurricanes and for the two thousand ten earthquake in haiti or bridges an all volunteer operation and trevor. Norman is the national chapter coordinator for airbridge responsible for much of the air operations when he's not volunteering for airbridge. He works fulltime in a similar job for the minnesota national guard. And now. here's our conversation with trevor norman. We'll trevor welcome to the aviation news. Talk podcast thanks for taking a few minutes from the disaster relief efforts to talk with us today. Thank you for having me glad to be here. Who was a little background about era bridge and tell us about its mission. So arab bridge started off backing all five under the Organization care we basically bridge the gap from initial disaster to when the when the ground troops can basically bring supplies and aid to a disaster area. And that's why we're era bridge. We bridge that gap through donation of airplanes corporate and private. And that's that's pretty much our mission. Tell what airbridge is doing right now to provide relief for victims of hurricane ida so right now we are obviously were fundraising. Were also trying to get supplies. Donated to our staging area in pensacola were looking at different staging areas in in houston and beaumont as well but right now pentacle is are is are up and running location. We are also encouraging pilots. Through a couple of means including Self procured items find directly into the disaster area. We do have a an airbridge. Faa approved call. Sign that can be put in the flight plan and your dsp. The donations through some of are are are funded through airbridge. So hurry up and kit on get on board. We've got five hundred dollars for pilots for a limited time to go grab the supplies that they need them fly directly into the disaster area otherwise we do have supplies supplies in pensacola and they're going to be flying directly into homa and lellouche or giuliano And that's where the biggest need is and some other places that were mentioned on flying magazine. I don't know if these are airports. Are cities hammond. Whom i golden meadow gold medal. And homa those are. Those are the two airports that were servicing. Right now hammond. We're looking at that. Initially that was one of our one of our areas that we're looking to stage out of But we really wanted to get closer to the closer disaster area hallmark and And giuliano believe. I'm pronouncing correctly with switcher hearing. Just how desperate is the situation on. The ground in louisiana obviously with the with a lot of power outage carnage roads. There's a lot of misinformation with regards to roads and passability. And i'll be honest with you. You can take a bulldozer or you can take heavy equipment on the roads but that does not mean it's passable but we're also seeing. Is you know a few. Take a semi Lot of ground troops are saying. Bring extra tires because quite honestly the roads are still full of debris. They're not as passable. If you take a semi down those roads it's gonna. It's gonna take a long time for aid to come out there. The situation is pretty desperate. We do have a story. that's on our facebook page. That you know there there's a A fifty five and eight year old. That are basically stranded. There's no aid heat water to to blow the water to get potable water. There's no way to really get any food. Nothing like that. There's no propane to to heat up. Anything is just desperate and they've resorted even eating like raw meat so the situation is pretty desperate and the one thing i want to say in quite honestly it's were on our way. Were were getting out there. Just have patients were getting out there. That's desperate but we're making it work until about the kind of supplies that you're flying in there. What are the greatest needs for supplies right now. Greatest needs right now. I mean obviously it's going to be the basics it's going to be first aid kits water food pet food on we all have. We all have animals for the most part Couple couple different things that. I've heard this time on that. I haven't really heard before Plastic benz so that people can start putting their lives back together and they can start sanitizing some the stuff that they have off from the ruins.

"Get to the library. They're about to close. I'm copying the tape uploading into my computer sending it off to my colleagues working on the episode. It makes it into the show the next day. It really helps make it shine. The whole effort is a success. And i'm telling you this. Because i don't think people realize that that level of teamwork and dedication goes into every episode that you hear of the daily. That sort of collaboration takes people. They take resources at take support from subscribers. So that's why i'm asking you to subscribe to the new york times so we can keep bringing you the daily everyday richard. You raised the question of how many residents of new orleans. We'll continue to stay in the city and how long they'll stay for. What did you mean by that. Well i mean. I grew up here and to me. This is always just like the the center of the universe and most new orleans people feel that way but i'm really increasingly concerned. About the stresses on so many of the people who've given the world this incredible culture food music and just the people who are here trying to live and get by and have a normal life. There's i think for a very long time going to be a group of very privileged. People are gonna live very well in new. And i'm staying in uptown new orleans right now and when i went on a walk this morning to go see if the grocery store was open you could hear the sound of privilege and it sounds like kind of the low home of gas power generator. That's keeping the blowing and some of these nicer homes and is allowing people to live through this thing with cold beer and you know to cook gumbo and keep a refrigerator running. And you know that really stands. In contrast with so many of the people. I talked to in so many people we know who have left your first a middle class person not to mention the working class person going out and staying in a hotel for four or five days with your kids it becomes very trying and of course For some people. It's just untenable and it can break them and for the poor. They have no way to get out. They're stuck in a very difficult situation without power. I just really wonder how long people are going to be able to stand this. If this is something that we see with more frequent and more powerful hurricanes are they going to want to stick it out even in a city that just generates a tremendous amount of love among its inhabitants. Yeah it sounds like for a lot of people in new orleans. They don't have the money to leave like they can't get a hotel room. They can't move themselves and their families out of town for a couple of days or maybe a couple of weeks and they also in some sense. Don't have the money to stay like. They can't get a generator. They can't do the things that would help them. Maintain a basic standard of living. Yeah i mean. I remember talking to a native new new orleans. Who's an old friend of mine after katrina. And i said well how how's the city fairing and he said to me. Well you know the people who were doing all right before the storm doing fine and the people who were kind of just on the bubble of doing all right. They're not doing very well right now. And then you know that doesn't even begin to describe what's happening to the people kind of economically below that level. I think warren buffett said you know when the tide goes out. You really know who's got their drawers on or not and you feel that after after a storm like this. And what has this reality of just constantly making these choices about leaving or staying. What does that meant for the city and its population as a whole will. We saw tremendous population decline after katrina. And you see cultures that were transformed in houston texas to cite one important example and atlanta where i live now there are just a lot more new orleans people there and one of the things that you heard i heard one guy say to me he was heading off to sugarland texas which is right by houston you know. He's he's packing up his car with his kids and family and stuff. Did you have people there. And he said yeah. I've got family there. They left and katrina and they never came back and it was the day before the sixteenth anniversary of katrina. You said you know we're going to go have a sweet sixteen reunion. The culture of new orleans is now kind of spread out you know from houston up to atlanta and beyond and it seems like to return to hurricane ida a little bit. There's this kind of metaphor that is sort of cer- forming in my mind about the sort of futility of trying to engineer our way out of a climate crisis because despite this fact of the levees this multibillion dollar infrastructure project actually working all this human ingenuity and political will that new orleans marshall to protect itself from another katrina level storm. It's still not somehow equal to the task of protecting the city from a storm and making the city into a place that people can live in thrive in even if they're not wealthy the amount of ingenuity and necessary hubris and vision that went into building this system around the city to me it just like it smacks of an old testament story. You know like the people built this thing right and then and then the lord was like yeah well good for you but guess what that's like one tenth of your problem solved right there. There is a huge swath of the gulf coast. A lot of it is is full of people who are just as worthy of saving as the people of new orleans. And where's their. Where's their wall. These hurricanes strike all over. The sea levels are rising all up and down the atlantic coast and beyond right i. I'm wondering about you. Mentioned there are places other than new orleans. That don't have this kind of infrastructure. These levees to protect themselves from flooding and from storms. How are they dealing with hurricane ida. Well you know. There are a lot of areas south and west. As i mentioned in a hurting really bad. There's a proposed project. it's kind of in. The works called them organza to the gulf project. It's very similar to the ring around new orleans that would contain some of these places like the city of home of louisiana. Which is you know kind of oil patch city and others but you know hurricanes are complex things in themselves know building a levee or a wall can help you prevent inundation from storm surge if you're lucky and smart but there's also the question of wind and there's also the question of rainfall and i think when you look at louisiana and much of the south including tennessee just the other day. A lot of these flooding events were having in this moment are coming from storms some of them unnamed kind of like day-to-day storms. That will just sit and park themselves over a community and just trash them and those are the kinds of problems that building. A wall really doesn't solve rishard in some sense what you're describing it. Sounds like is a great american city new orleans that has become if not uninhabitable due to climate disasters at least a lot harder and more expensive to keep open and livable and i'm also thinking about friends of mine privileged friends of mine. I guess who are planning to leave california for a few months this fall to get away from the fires and the smoke. And i guess. I'm just meditating. On the fact that in america because of climate change there are some people who are leaving home because they don't have any other choice and there are some people who are leaving home because they do their privileged enough to be able to move somewhere safer but both groups are leaving home. I think it's dawning on everybody. That so many people in our country are having to come up with a plan. B for the very most basic elements of their existence. Which is you know. sort. Of where do i need to be because of tragedy x. The problem that new orleans faces is a problem that so many communities face sometimes in a different guise with a different challenge. But it's become a universal fact of life for people all over the place right. I know that. Richard you're their new orleans reporting on this in your professional capacity but as someone who still has family there and who has spent a lot of time in new orleans. I'm wondering how you and your family are thinking about your own version of these questions. Whether new orleans is still the right place to be what new orleans will even be ten or twenty years from now you know these kinds of processes over such a long time line sometimes in this era of climate crisis. You know the way that i think. A lot of people myself included thought. About how a tragedy that would befall a city would happen are not quite accurate. It's not the godzilla who comes and destroys the city and five minutes breathing fire. It's an maybe it's not even katrina. You know where you know one day. You're dry the next day. You're eighty percent on water and there's more than a thousand people dead. You know the this longer term tragedy. That unfolds is the thing that i really. I'm really concerned about. Which is i think concerns everyone. Which is that over.

"It kind of did its job and what does this levee system actually look like how does it work for those of us who aren't levy experts. Well i'm not a leading expert. Either but i can tell you that it's many things in some cases it strengthened levy's levy walls. And you know they're things that you don't really always see if you're living in this very urban environment in this old city of new orleans but it's out there and some of this stuff is like hoover dam level huge. A few years ago. I went fishing out by one of these massive new gates. I mean imagine a kind of placid wetland and then like this kind of star wars death star level. Concrete edifice just stuck out there. It's really impressive. But it's one of the dynamics has been interesting. Here is that people. Don't trust the government after katrina. They've been told this thing exists. But like i said it's really hard to see it and you can't really see it just all at once. It's hard to really grasp how big and how vast it is and there was definitely an interesting tension here between people this week. Who were saying. I don't trust this system. I don't care what they say or how many billions they spent versus a lot of people who really know the system. We were saying. No no. it's like it's real like we really spent billions and we have some really smart engineers like it's hard to trust the government after what happened with katrina and the loss of confidence in government entities after katrina was really really intense and it certainly lingers to this day. Yeah and of course now. With a couple of days of reporting in hindsight we know that hurricane ida did come and the levees held and i wonder if there's a part of you that thinks that this is a story of of things working do you feel any sense of that on the ground with the people you're talking to because when you talk to people it sounds like they're dealing with very real issues in their own lives. There may be not thinking about well. I'm glad we funded that levee system will you know there's very little sense of celebration here and part of that has to do with the fact that as of right now there's a humanitarian crisis looming in new orleans. Even though it's dry there's no electricity and with no electricity. There's no air conditioning. And we're in late august early september in south louisiana. It's sweltering to the point of dangerous. The heat index is one hundred plus every day. And we'll be for many days we don't know when the energy's gonna come back. People don't have jobs to go to the schools are closed in jefferson parish. Which is the suburban parish. Right next door to orleans parish. Nobody has any water right now. The lines for gasoline are four plus hours for those that are open. People are cooking their last food from the refrigerators that they've cleaned out the people who are living in these sweltering apartments who are infirm. Who have issues with health are potentially headed to a healthcare system that was already way overtaxed due to cove in one thousand nine hundred and the new delta variant related spike. From the vantage of us. Right now who are in the city. It doesn't feel like things are fixed. It feels like we're confronting major major challenges right like it's hard to focus on the silver lining when the cloud is so big exactly and the silver lining only helps so much. I've been thinking a lot in the last day or so about the toll that even this storm which didn't swamp the city has taken for one. You have all these outlying areas that have been very badly hit. They were hit by heavy rain. They were hit by wind. The city of homa louisiana has been very badly beaten up and we know from researchers that we're going to see stronger storms. Most likely we're gonna see more frequent storms. And i really fear now that the city is just going to continue to suffer despite the incredible resilience of the people who live here. I mean how can the city not continue to be diminished. Who.

And we're glad to have him here. Hi chit highmark morning chip. May i ask where you are working from in this day of remote working. I am still remote myself. I'm working from columbus. Ohio to be closer to my family goddess regardless of where you are chip. You have been in touch with the c. suite. I'm wondering is the fear of people never wanting to come back is just conversation or is this going to be a real issue. The longer we stay remote. This is a real concern. Among a number of executives across industries habits are powerful people have developed new routines in the pandemic and the longer that this has stretched on the more that people have sort of gotten used to working at home and sort of structuring. Their day around remote work the more that many say that there's sort of locked in to give this up and that's causing concern among executives feeling that it's going to be difficult and incredibly disruptive to bring people back into on any sort of pre pandemic schedules even people who maybe once were reluctant to embrace remote work. Who didn't want to get new office chairs at home they didn't they were largely working from the kitchen table. I've spoken with some of those workers. Who said they finally upgraded their setups. In recent months they feel like they're more comfortable now. They like remote work in some ways. And so i think all of this is causing. Some new worries across companies chip. Is there any data on this. So surveys have shown that actually people's preferences and people's feelings towards him at work have actually increased the longer the pandemic has gone on groups like pbc and others have surveyed workers and employers and many people have said that they would like to stay remote that they feel. This is working well for them and yet many employers had some concerns about long-term remote work. We've seen studies showing that productivity has largely held up but are there worries about other things like holding onto talent. This is a big worry. One executive at financial services giant prudential told me that talent is his number one concern at this point and that he feels that people can approach their jobs more from just looking at the numbers and how much they're paid. They're thinking now that they're remote than are disconnected from their colleagues. He says many are maybe more willing to take a call from a recruiter or to entertain an offer somewhere else. And i think we've seen this. Obviously across a number of different professions over the past couple of months as people have quit their jobs for something else but many people many executives really fear that not being able to kind of convene people to bring people together in person to let people see sort of the fun size of their jobs to be able to talk with colleagues and developed those relationships they think it sort of becomes a situation where it's sort of all drudgery. No fun that work. Maybe it's it's easier to sort of just say i'm going to take a job somewhere else. That might pay me a little bit more. I don't feel as tied to my current employer. How does this possibility of an even further delay play into the argument for a hybrid work minal. Some businesses supported others. Shun it that they do. It's still sort of has sort of a range of feelings. When you bring up hype hubbard work. But i think this really makes hybrid work sort of all the more appealing. Many workers many executives have said that they realize that working from home even a couple of days a week can be incredibly important can be really helpful. Sort of that heads down. Time has become a way for people to be more productive at home to get more work done. And i think many are sort of reluctant to give that up and so as we sort of talk about what returned to office might look like many companies are now realizing hybrid has to be part of that discussion so much shuffling so much adjusting as we watch to see what the kobe thousand nine virus doesn't acts with the delta variant does next chip what's next for companies companies are having a really tough time this fall. They expected things to be different and they set different plans. So many have stopped even giving return to office day to this point. They say that they're sick. Of just kind of continually moving them back. Companies like dell and others have just told workers that will let you know. We'll give you a lot of notice before you come back to the office. But we can't give a firm date at this point other companies had sort of planned over the coming months to finally bring people together. There were a lot of sales kickoffs and annual conventions and other events planned for this fall. And it's interesting. Some companies initially said. Can we make those events smaller and still hold them other said. Can we just invite the employees not spouses for example and now many companies are now delaying those events. Or cancelling them altogether and realizing that. It's just not safe at the moment. And so i think this becomes a really difficult time for people trying to figure out. How do we sort of run organizations. Keep people motivated. Keep them engaged with these. Continued delays chip cutter among. The many working. Remotely still chip. Thank you thanks so much. Mark and finally the internet uproar over how often.
