Some of the Major Projects, Rescues and Accomplishments by Doug Copp for ARTI during 1998, 1999, 2000, created March 2003, confined to a 5 page list.
The money donated by Doug Copp during this time period (immediately preceding total disability at the World Trade Center) was used to save more than 100,000 lives, reduce the suffering of hundreds of thousands more people; was publicized in 300 plus TV broadcasts, featured on several documentaries, aired on BBC Radio World Service to 130 million audience 6 times, written about in many magazines and more than 20,000 separate newspapers. In total, during this time period, my work was publicized to more than 1 billion people. I have copies of many of these newspapers, TV Broadcasts, video footage and hundreds of thank you letters from Presidents, Kings and other noteworthy people. Most of the cash of ARTI was donated by Doug Copp, although the stricken Governments contributed many millions of dollars in Kind (helicopters, naval ships, cargo planes, commercial airlines, military vehicles, hotels, military and governmental resources etc etc, etc)
The Summary Short List of my work, in 50 plus countries and actual travel to 25 countries, during this time period, includes:
1) As the Chief and Founder of the National Rescue Team of Turkey, I gave many training courses, lectured to many Government Agencies and changed the entire mentality of the Turkish Authorities and People. Previously the modus operandi had been to haul the rubble with victims live and dead, to the dump. There was absolutely no rescue. After my years of work this changed to one of saving the lives of every victim. In a country which previously made no effort to save trapped victims; the team I created saved 358 victims buried alive, in Turkey, during 1999. ABC Network paid me to accompany me to Turkey and film me saving the life of a little girl trapped under 9 floors, of rubble, for 3 days. This rescue, under almost impossible circumstances, has been broadcast to more than 100 countries on 5 different TV Programs a total of more than 60 times. It has been broadcast on American TV more than 100 times on several major networks. I have 250 permanent team members, in Turkey, who have included, National Heroes, The Prime Minister, Movie Stars and many other outstanding celebrities. I have created rescue teams, in several countries. This one is permanent and will save many thousands of lives, over time.
2) The money I earned during 2000 saved the lives of 100,000+ victims in India during January of 2001. As reported on the Front Page of the Times of India (10 million copies simultaneously published per day) the Indian Government placed me in charge of the entire resources of the Indian Government. The Ministry of Health expected 125,000 to 250,000 deaths from a re-outbreak of the plague. By following my leadership the plague was completely prevented. These lives were saved. Also, we saved the lives of many people buried alive `although 100,000 died from building collapse.
3) I taught and lectured to dozens of Rescue Teams and Fire Departments, University Professors and Students, Government Officials. Also, I taught and lectured to Engineers and Civil Defense Officials at many Universities. I am referred to in the Official Government Training Manuals of many countries (such as, the front page of Ministry of Civil Defense, New Zealand and providing the training videos to most of the Australian Government Agencies and Fire Departments). I have many awards, keys to the city, membership and Government Issued Emergency ID’s (Uniquely issued to a non-citizen, from many countries), Distinguished University Diplomas and medals from this time period.
4) I acquired and delivered several million dollars worth of rescue equipment, which I transported to and personally delivered to volunteer rescue teams in 3rd world countries.
5) Advising many countries on the ‘Triangle of Life’ invented by Copp to take survivability in collapsed buildings to more than 90%, This scientific Discovery, by myself is now being taught and formally adopted and used by most of the countries worldwide who previously suffered the highest Casualties from Natural Disasters. This includes, Peru, Turkey, Nepal, India, Bangladesh and others.
6) I Re-created a rescue capacity in Tajikistan after the collapse of the Soviet Union. I trained soldiers, mountain climbers and civilians to be firefighters and rescuers. Upon my arrival there had been no firefighting or rescuers remaining. They had all returned to Russia. This was accomplished via a sub-contract with the European Union.
a) I Re-invigorated by example an international Ex Patriot Community frozen by fear of death (an ambush had recently killed several UN employees), I was the first of hundreds of representatives from International Relief Agencies who would walk the streets of Dushambi even though murders and machinegun fire took place daily
b) I arranged for the escape of a political dissident who was close to being killed for his democratic beliefs.
c) I consulted on the means of diverting the largest landslide, in the world, which was in the process of destroying dozens of towns and villages in Tajikistan.
d) I worked with the members of the Order of Mother Teresa on a safety project in a country that had previously sentenced Christians to 30 years in prison for the act of being caught praying. I worked with Father Joseph in Tajikistan to protect the lives of the underground Christian Community in an Islamic Fundamentalist Country.
e) I taught all the Professors of the National Technical University and their individual classes ‘the triangle of life’. This was adopted as their formal policy. I , further trained a group of 100 ‘trainers’ to go to schools throughout the country and perpetuate my ‘survival methods’. We started with the pre-school and kindegarden children.
7) I Assisted the Dali Lama on 3 International Peace Initiatives. Also, ARTI members placed the flag of Tibet as a proposed ‘World Park’ on the peaks of the world’s 7 tallest mountains. ARTI saved the lives of a member of an International Climbing Team, on Mount Everest.
8) I originated and conceptualized a peace project acted upon by the President of Taiwan, the Pope and the Dali Lama This co-operative project was announced on CNN many times.
9) I worked with democratic forces in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
10) I arranged for the Turkish and Greek Rescue Teams and Governments amongst who I am very famous (I had appeared on Greek and Turkish TV many times as a humanitarian and heroic person during previous disasters in both countries. The President of Greece thanked me personally and the Prime Minister of Turkey sent regards.) To work together as a single team at the First major Earthquake, in Turkey during 1999. This was the cumulation of 4 years of work, which was consummated in a ‘peace’ meeting and thawing of relations between the Prime Minister of Turkey and the President of Greece, officiated over by President Clinton. This was televised worldwide. Similar work between Turkey and Armenia garnered the support of the Armenian Ambassador to the United Nations, the President of Armenia and several Turkish Generals and Political Leaders.
11) I was the Inspector General of All the 50 rescue teams working in Turkey during 1999. This included my formal inspection of the FEMA (USA Government Team) in Turkey.
12) I Allowed an Israeli Production Company to accompany me to 5 major disasters to make a major documentary about my work
13) I gave several lectures sponsored by the Ministry of External Affairs of Peru simul broadcast throughout the entirety of South America, Attended by many Political Figures from numerous Embassies.
14) At the request of Maria Reich, the Discover of the United Nations designated World Heritage Site: ‘The Nazca Lines’ (The subject of dozens of National Geographic and other documentaries) I saved the 2,000 year old giant land-drawings of animals, birds, crocodiles etc (only seen from an airplane) from complete destruction. I designed the drainage plan and restoration project, which saved the Lines from complete El Nino Destruction. The Governor of the region and the Mayor of Nasca assisted me with planes and resources. My plan was funded by the United Nations and implemented by the Peruvian Ministry of the Interior.
15) During the El Nino in Peru, ARTI-Peru with 7,500 members saved many lives. My work here brought International Teams and our own small group saved the lives of some orphan children at a completely destroyed orphanage. I did the preliminary work for the British Documentary ‘Future Storm’ as the world-expert regarding major disaster destruction caused by global climatic change.
16) I Lectured and touring several American, British and Canadian Embassies for the reduction of security and safety threats. This included access to CIA, top secret, areas of the embassies.
17) I prepared a report for President Bush and White House Chief of Staff, Andrew Card Jr. concerning the economic loss and potential political destabilization caused by the El Salvador earthquake, at the request of the White House. I was in charge of an International ARTI team with members from 5 countries and covered the entire country-recovering victims. This was publicized on CNN, NBC, BBC and other networks.
18) I saved the lives of many people during the Earthquake in Taiwan. Since, I had already signed a co-operative agreement with the National Rescue Team of Taiwan several years before and had assisted the President of Taiwan on 2 prior projects I was given the honor of leading the only team given carte blanche to travel the country from disaster site to disaster site, at will. With the complete resources of helicopters, humvees trucks and Taiwanese Military personnel, at my disposal.
19) The Venezuelan Government had been trained, by me, during 1999. I stayed at a private Government Apartment at their top-secret and guarded think tank and nuclear facility. This level of prestige and credibility was fruitful during the floods of 2000 in which we saved many lives. Using one of my inventions: the ‘ARTI DeTox Suit’ to treat//cure several hundred children from skin disease during the Venezuelan Floods, which killed 50,000. The children were treated with my equipment at the Venezuellan Military Base, with the complete co-operation of the Venezuellan Government.
20) I advised Prince Charles and Dean Harris (private assistant to Prime Minister Tony Blair), Minister Brown (The Minister of Agriculture of Great Britain) and Guy Verhofstadt (The Prime Minister of Belgium) and Robert Coleman (The Director of The Health Consumer Directorate of the European Commission) regarding the elimination and control of ‘Hoof and Mouth’ Disease. I have many documents regarding this valuable contribution. I met with the highest level politicians in several countries. According to the European Commission, my recommendations were followed and written into law among the European Community Parliament.
21) I trained an entire city in Southern Peru (ILO) to prepare against explosions, chemical spills, train derailment, earthquake and mine collapse. I trained the Police, Military, Fire Dept, Red Cross and Dept. of Health.
22) The New Zealand, Ministry of Civil Defense used my training manuals, training cd’s to design the New Zealand General Rescue Manual with my picture and credit to ARTI on the front cover.
23) We signed co-operative rescue and humanitarian agreements with 10 countries; including, Kenya, Croatia, The Philippines etc.etc
24) I used my invention ‘The Copp Casualty Locator’ to recover victims from numerous disasters, around the world. As demonstrated to representatives from 300 of the major Police, Military and Rescue Organizations, in the world, during a training session in Canada, this is the only machine that can locate human remains. (e.g The US Navy, NYPD, LAFD, ‘Scotland Yard’, South African Police, etc.)
25) In Kosovo, I was accompanied by German TV. I was broadcast throughout Europe on 8 TV Networks as I used the Casualty Locator to find mass grave (murder) sites for the US Military. I was filmed searching LIVE mine fields. I went into Kosovo during battle and before the US Army arrived. I was shot at and drove 30 miles on a mined and attacked ‘no-man’s land’. I have 8 hours of this footage.
26) I was the key figure responsible for locating John F. Kennedy Jr., after the plane crash, I provided the solution which lead to the immediate locating of John F. Kennedy’s remains. The US Coast Guard was able to locate JFK in within 1 hour of the implementation of my solution.
27) I Returned to the site of the Swiss Air Crash ( Nova Scotia, Canada) to consult with concerned parties.
The website has hundreds of pages outlining this work. This list is just a small portion of the many projects I accomplished during these three years. I expect that no Organization with a budget of millions or billions accomplished more for humanity. I have a stack of documents 3 feet high, hundreds of hours of video, thousands of pictures, hundreds of newspapers and magazines, which substantiate and applaud these accomplishments. To be a member of ARTI is to sacrifice and accomplish.
