Local Firefighters Take Part in Federal Aviation Mandated Drill at Airport



On Wednesday, May 11, 2011, the Port of Portland Fire Department sponsored a simulated emergency drill at the Portland International Airport.


This was a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) mandated drill and was not a real emergency.



Once every three years, the FAA requires the Port of Portland to conduct a full-scale exercise to test the airport's and local fire agencies and private ambulance company’s ability to respond to a large-scale disaster.


This year, participating fire agencies included the Port Fire Department, Portland Fire & Rescue, Hillsboro Fire & Department, Gresham Fire & Emergency Services, and Clackamas Fire District #1. The private ambulance company involved was AMR.   


The emergency preparedness drill was stage inside and outside of the terminal, just off Airport Way. More than 300 participants including airport emergency responders, outside agencies, and community volunteers participated in the mock drill.


The drill simulation included an aircraft carrying passengers that departed a main runway, discontinued its climb into the air, and suffered a low impact crash coming to rest in a gravel lot off the end of the runway. 

During the exercise, Portland Fire & Rescue firefighters and command personnel participated in the simulated fire attack, search and rescue, triage and treatment, incident command, and rehabilitation efforts. Fire companies on hand included Engine 12, Engine 28, Engine 19, Engine 10 and Rehab 10, Truck 7, and Squad 1.

Additional photos of the simulated drill will be posted on Portland Fire & Rescue's Facebook.
