About

Airport Operators must be able to cope with an emergency occurring at the airport or in its vicinity and to minimize the impact. They play a leading role in the effeteness of the experts’ team and the Airport Community to respond. Knowledgeable and skilled personnel must ensure prompt and competent response, based on the Airport Emergency Response Plan (ERP), previously coordinated with potentially involved agencies and stakeholders.
