DAYTON — The Dayton International Airport will host a full scale scenario-based exercise today to evaluate the effectiveness of the airport’s emergency plan.
The DAY airfield will transform into a simulated crisis zone for the emergency exercise, which will take place from 8 a.m. to noon.
Dayton airport aviation staff, fire rescue, police department, several emergency response agencies, and many volunteers will participate in the exercise to test EMS/medical response, command post operations and communications.
The exercise, which is conducted every three years as required by the Federal Aviation Administration, not only evaluates the effectiveness of the airport’s emergency plan, but also its ability to respond to a major incident.
