CrashEx ensures airport safety

Emergency services prepared...

Great success yesterday in Port Macquarie at the Live Crash Exercise at the airport, over 50 emergency services personnel participating in the simulated training event.

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority requires airports such as ours to practice the Airport Emergency Procedures every 2 years.

It was this time designed to familiarise emergency services participants with the protocols, and focus on a scenario involving a regular public transport aircraft.

Director Rebecca Olsen says the operation allows for prompt and efficient emergency response and rescue if an emergency were to arise.
