Emergency drill to take place at Amman airport
Amman, March 11, 2014
A full emergency drill in collaboration with governmental and relevant entities is to be held today (March 11) at the Queen Alia International Airport in Amman.
The exercise, designed to simulate a fire breakout in the building, will tackle emergency evacuation procedures, said a statement from Airport International Group (AIG), the Jordanian company responsible for the rehabilitation, expansion and operation of QAIA.
No risks will be involved in the drill and that it will not interfere with passenger schedules or cause flight delays, it said.
The step falls in line with AIG’s ongoing efforts to train QAIA employees on the proper procedures for dealing with a variety of emergency scenarios.
The drill corresponds with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) policies and Jordan’s Civil Aviation Regulatory Commission’s (CARC) regulations, both of which require that such exercises be regularly implemented due to the significant impact they have on ensuring the highest levels of safety and security for passengers and aviation workers. - TradeArabia News Service
