Emergency preparedness exercise at Sofia Airport

Today, 30 September 2015, a scheduled full-scale emergency preparedness exercise was carried out at Sofia Airport. It aimed at testing the preparedness level of the airport authorities for response in emergency situations.

The exercise was conducted in two stages – response actions of the Fire and Rescue Department in emergencies, as well as moving aircraft that went off the runway while landing and could not taxi.

The exercise proved that the authorities were well prepared for taking response actions in emergency situations.

The exercise was carried out in accordance with the provisions of Regulation No 3 from 25.05.2009 on emergency preparedness and response at civilian airports.

Both stages did not affect normal operations at Sofia Airport. All flights were operated without any disruptions.
