St. Joseph County Airport Authority to Conduct Full-Scale Emergency Response Drill


SOUTH BEND, Ind — Friday, September 09, 2011, South Bend, IN: The St. Joseph County Airport Authority and South Bend Airport (SBN) will conduct a full-scale emergency response disaster drill this Saturday, September 10, 2011. The disaster drill exercise, part of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Part 139 requirements for SBN to operate as a commercial airport, will begin at approximately 8:00 a.m. on September 10th.

Per FAA requirements, the Airport is mandated to carry out a full scale emergency exercise every three years as a test of the Airport’s Aircraft Rescue, Firefighting, and Emergency response procedures to an aircraft incident. Local police, fire, and emergency medical personnel as well as the St. Joseph County Emergency Management, Red Cross and other social service agencies from the community will participate in the exercise along with Airport Authority personnel. The mandate is put in place to maximize safety response systems at the airport in the event of an emergency.

Passengers traveling from the South Bend Airport this Saturday morning should be advised of drill procedures and should not be alarmed at any occurrences that they may notice across the airfield. Scheduled commercial aircraft operations will not be affected by the drill process and all arrival and departures will occur as scheduled. Please note that radio transmissions referring to responses to an aircraft incident are part of this exercise and should not raise concern. It is expected that the exercise will conclude by noon on Saturday, September 10, 2011.

The local media has been advised and invited to participate in and observe the drill procedures. Immediately following the conclusion of the drill exercise, Airport Director John Schalliol will lead drill participants and volunteers in a moment of reflection for the anniversary of 9/11.
