Emergency Exercise at Airport 20 November 2004

On Tuesday 23rd November 2004, a simulated aircraft incident will be played out at the Isle of Man Airport. As part of the Airport's commitment to safety and to meet strict international safety standards, an emergency exercise will be carried out involving Department of Transport Airport personnel together with participants from the Island's Emergency Services and voluntary groups. Police, Fire and Rescue, Ambulance and Paramedics, Noble's Hospital, Coastguard, DHSS, Civil Defence, together with other agencies will be taking part, or be represented in the exercise.

The aim of the exercise is to practice and validate the emergency plans, procedures and responses of all agencies and organisations responding to an incident at the Airport. Such exercises are held on a regular basis at the Airport, and complement the continuous process of training for, and being prepared for emergencies at the Airport. This exercise had been planned by the Airport in conjunction with the Department of Home Affairs, Emergency Planning and Civil Defence Division, and other representatives of the Island's Emergency Services.

The exercise will take place within the boundary of the Airport, and will involve a simulated incident on the airfield. Emergency services will respond to the incident, and deal with the crash scene, and exercise "passengers" as they would in a real emergency.

The exercise will take place after the cessation of normal operations at about 8.30 pm and last for approximately two hours.
