Full-Scale Emergency Drill Planned for Shreveport Regional Airport

You’ll see a lot of emergency activity around Shreveport Regional Airport tomorrow morning, but there’s no reason to be concerned.  

It’s just a drill and should not affect normal airport operations.

Every year, the Caddo-Bossier Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness holds a full-scale disaster drill. And every three years that drill is held at one of the airports — Regional or Downtown.  Tomorrow, it will be at Regional — starting around 9:30.

It will simulate a crash involving two aircraft and will involve just about every emergency response agency in the area. A number of students will act as victims and area hospitals will be receiving them for treatment. Officials from the Federal Aviation Administration will be on hand to observe and evaluate all aspects of the drill.
