Full Scale Emergency Preparedness Exercise to Take Place at AC International Airport
EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP- The Atlantic City International Airport (ACY) will conduct a full scale Emergency Preparedness Exercise on Saturday, May 11, 2013.
The exercise, which will run from 8 a.m. to noon, is conducted every three years in compliance with federal regulations. No local roads will be closed, although increased emergency vehicle activity may occur during the drill on Tilton Road (CR 563) where it passes by ACY and the Tilton Road-Delilah Road intersection. The airport will remain open for business.
The exercise will evaluate the emergency plans and agreements for the airport, federal, state, county and local response agencies that would be directly involved in a large-scale aircraft incident.
Residents in the area should not be alarmed or concerned if they hear sirens and observe smoke that may be generated during the exercise.
