Airport emergency exercise planned

East End residents shouldn't be alarmed when they see a hive of activity around the airport on Monday night.

The presence of police officers and fire service officers will be all part of an emergency exercise.

The Ministry of National Security said the exercise would take place between 6 and 8pm.

“The Ministry also encourages the public's patience if any traffic delays are experienced once the exercise gets under way,” said a Government spokesperson.

“It should also be stressed that the emergency exercise will not affect scheduled arriving or departing airline flights.”

Emergency simulations are required periodically to test Bermuda's readiness in the event of a crisis situation. Representatives from the Emergency Measures Organisation (EMO) will be involved in Monday's simulation.
