Incident Response 2
AIRFIELD INCIDENTS – PREPARE, RESPOND & RECOVER
09:10 EDT

As airside managers, we are accountable for the safe and efficient operation of our airports. Every day can throw challenges your way but as professionals, we plan, prepare to respond and recover effectively from incidents. And how we do this can be critical to life and future learnings through investigations.

This session uses dramatic case studies showing how this has been achieved at airports and with our partners at the TSB.
