Emergency response drill set at Bush Intercontinental for May 7

The mock event scenario will give the emergency responders at Bush Intercontinental and mutual aid agencies a chance to practice response procedures

May 7, 2016

HOUSTON — On May 7, 2016, the Emergency Preparedness group at George Bush Intercontinental will hold a full-scale drill, which will include activities designed to help ensure airport personnel and airport stakeholders are prepared in the event of an emergency response.

Federal Aviation regulations require airports to practice a full scale exercise of the airport’s emergency plan once every three years.

The mock event scenario — a collision between two aircraft on a runway — will give the emergency responders at Bush Intercontinental and mutual aid agencies a chance to practice response procedures. The drill will begin at 9:30 a.m. that Saturday and last approximately 4 hours. All activities will be held on airport property, and signage will be in place to notify the public that the activities are part of an emergency response drill.

The drill will not impact flight operations or public access to the airport.

For any questions, please call 281-233-1234.
