Richmond International Airport (RIC) to Conduct Full-Scale Emergency Response Exercise This Weekend

Test of Airport Emergency Plan (AEP), Mandated by FAA, Scheduled for Saturday, July 10th, 9:00 am until Conclusion of Response Scenarios

July 8, 2010

RICHMOND, Virginia (July 8, 2010) -

Emergency Exercise Facts

  • As mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), airports are to conduct full-scale tests of their Airport Emergency Plan (AEP) every three years. Such drills not only test the AEP, but also create a real-time practice environment for multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional response coordination that would be necessary in the event of an actual incident.
  • Emergency response measures build upon the National Incident Management System (NIMS) which provides a consistent and scalable template for managing incidents.
  • Between triennial full-scale drills, airports conduct other simulations and training exercises, such as tabletop work sessions with the participation of supporting organizations.
  • Accordingly, RIC will conduct a full-scale emergency response exercise this Saturday, July 10th.
  • Expected participants include: RIC Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF), RIC Police and other airport staff and management representatives, airline representatives, Henrico Department of Emergency Management, Henrico Division of Fire, Henrico Division of Police, Chesterfield Department of Emergency Management, Chesterfield Fire & EMS Department, Richmond Fire & EMS Department, Hanover County Fire & EMS Department, Richmond Ambulance Authority, Colonial Heights Fire & EMS, Lakeside Volunteer Rescue Squad, West End Volunteer Rescue Squad, Forest View Volunteer Rescue Squad, American Red Cross, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), RIC's Air Traffic Control Tower (ATC/FAA), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Virginia State Police, Virginia Department of Health (including Medical Examiner's office), Virginia Department of Fire Programs, Virginia Department of Transportation, Virginia Department of Aviation, and Community Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) from Chesterfield, Hanover, Henrico, Richmond & Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).

Impact during the Drill Period

  • The airport anticipates no impact to normal operations during the emergency response exercise.
  • Multiple scenarios will test emergency response and coordination during the event.
  • RIC will post signs in the terminal building and broadcast announcements over the public address system in the terminal building to advise airport customers that an emergency response simulation is in progress.
  • Planning for the exercise has been underway for several months.
  • RIC will close runway RWY 7/25 today until approximately 5:00pm EDT Saturday. Appropriate notifications have been issued. RWY 16/34 and RWY 2/20, RIC's commercial runways, will remain open.
