Airport schedules emergency simulation

An emergency simulation exercise is scheduled to take place at Bermuda's Airport on Monday.

The objective is to test LF Wade International's readiness in the event of a plane crash or other emergency and will not affect scheduled flights.

The Department of Airport Operations' regulatory requirements demand this must happen every two years.

Airport officials urge residents not to be alarmed if they see increased emergency personnel moving around the Island on that day.

The public can also expect activity in and around the airport and motorists may experience delays once the simulation starts.

All flights will arrive and depart as scheduled on Monday and no flights are scheduled into or out of Bermuda during the exercise. There will also be increased marine activity around the airport.

A spokesperson for the airport said in a statement: “This is an important exercise for Bermuda and particularly the Department of Airport Operations.

“If there are emergencies during the exercise, emergency personnel will be available to handle the situation, as they would normally.”
