Transport Services Supporting Plan

The Transport Services Functional Area Supporting Plan outlines the provision of land, sea and air transport support as required by a Combat Agency, emergency services organisations and other Functional Areas, whilst maintaining as far as practicable, the normal operations and activities of public and commercial transport services.

Tasks for providing transport to other Services or Areas might include:

  • movement of emergency equipment and personnel
  • movement of emergency supplies and goods including water, fuel and food
  • evacuation of people and animals
  • assistance for medical transport.

The plan also describes the Transport Services Functional role in maintaining and operating a transport route advisory service to the Combat Agency, emergency services organisations and other Functional Areas and members of the public.

Sponsored by the Ministry of Transport.
