San Francisco Airport completed annual emergency exercise

Simulation tests immediate response and coordination between agencies

The San Francisco International Airport (SFO) completed its annual emergency exercise yesterday, simulating a security incident to test emergency procedures for communication, incident command, and coordination between multiple agencies. Although federal regulations require US airports to conduct such a drill once every three years, SFO conducts it annually to ensure the highest level of readiness.

Agencies participating in the exercise included the following:

American Medical Response

US Customs & Border Protection

Federal Bureau of Investigation

San Francisco Fire Department

San Francisco Police Department

San Mateo County Department of Public Health

Signature Flight Support

SFO 911 Dispatch Center

Transportation Security Administration

United Airlines.

The exercise also demonstrated the capabilities of the SFO Emergency Operations Center (EOC), which serves as the focal point of the Airport’s efforts to restore normal operations following an event, and SFO Mobile Command Post, a purpose-built vehicle that gives incident commanders full situational awareness, including coordinated communication and CCTV access regardless of location.
