Photos & Video: Airport Emergency Exercise

December 7, 2015

[Updated with video] An emergency exercise took place at the L. F. Wade International Airport today [Dec 7] to test Bermuda’s readiness in the event of a plane crash or other emergency.

The exercise, which must be undertaken every two years to ensure Bermuda is compliant with international regulatory requirements, involved various agencies as well as dozens of volunteers.

Airport General Manager, Aaron Adderley said, “We thank the public for their patience this afternoon as we tested Bermuda’s state of readiness for an aircraft emergency.

“In the days ahead, all agencies involved with the exercise shall debrief and evaluate their respective response procedures collectively. Additionally, we would like to thank those agencies and the dozens of volunteers whose efforts greatly assisted in making the exercise possible.”
