An emergency exercise is being staged at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (JLA) this Thursday evening, 5th February.

The exercise is due to commence at 21:30, lasting for approximately two hours and will take place in order to test and exercise procedures within the Airport’s emergency plan which is used in the event of a full scale emergency incident at the Airport.

It is a requirement by the Civil Aviation Authority for airports such as Liverpool to regularly test its emergency procedures and this particular multi-agency exercise will take place to the east of the Airport, outside of the perimeter fence along Dungeon lane.

Personnel from Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service, Merseyside Police, Cheshire Fire & Rescue, Cheshire Constabulary, North West Regional Ambulance Service and Local Authority representatives will all be participating.
The Airport will however be operating ‘business as usual’ throughout the exercise and no passengers or airlines will be affected by the training taking place.
