Event Details

Newark Airport Disaster Drill

 

NJ Wing Members,


We have been called upon once again by the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey to help out in Newark Airport’s Disaster Drill for 2011. Every year the airport holds a large scale disaster drill as a training exercise for numerous fire departments, paramedics, law enforcement departments, airport operations, etc to put their skills to the test. CAP is typically called upon for this event to serve as victims for a simulated aircraft accident. Seniors & cadets will have makeup (moulage) applied to them to simulate being involved in an aircraft accident. First responders will then have to triage the members as they see appropriate utilizing their skills.

 

Date, Time, & Location

This year’s event will take place on Saturday the 15th of October at the Newark International Airport in Newark, NJ.

Participants should meet no later than 0730 at Newark Airport, Building 79 on Brewster Road. (Northeast corner of the airport just west of NJ Turnpike). Carpooling is highly recommended.

There will be a briefing conducted by the Port Authority, so it is imperative that you arrive in a timely fashion. The exercise should conclude by 12PM. Please note that this time may change depending on the progression of the drill.
