Every airport needs to have in place an emergency response plan, in order to be prepared when worst scenario happens: an aircraft incident at or in the vicinity of an airport. This involves dealing with unforeseen events, contingencies and infectious diseases at an airport as well as business continuity. Staff need to be adequately trained to react on incidents. This interactive course will give an introduction on how to make an airport emergency risk assessment. Risks will jointly be prioritized and mitigation actions developed until the risk can be accepted.

Attending this course will provide participants with a structural and practical insight in emergency management. Basics of ICAO Annex 14 and EASA requirements will be taught before deepening the knowledge through the presentation of case studies. Practical exercises assist attendees to understand how emergency situations are being managed and which role each stakeholder plays in such scenarios: who is involved, which external stakeholders are needed or what role can an airport play in crisis situations. The results of practical table top exercises will be evaluated and can later assist planning at their own organisation.

This course targets all airport stakeholders who are involved in Emergency Planning and Management within their organizations (airport operators, ATC, RFFS, planners, inspectors) but also personnel of oversight authorities.
