Emergency Drill Exercise
January 20 @ 7:30 am - 12:30 pm
On January 20, 2018, the Salisbury-Ocean City: Wicomico Regional Airport will be conducting a “Triennial Disaster Drill” as mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), from 0900 until approximately 1200 local time. A drill critique will be conducted immediately following the drill.
The exercise is designed to test the effectiveness of emergency response plans for the Airport and participating responding agencies in the event of an aircraft mishap at the airport. This critical training session allows for the Airport and first responders to collaborate and comply with the highest FAA standards in safety and security. Additionally, the exercise will identify our strengths and weaknesses with respect to preparing for, responding to, and recovering from an aviation disaster.
