Don’t Worry! Be Happy It’s Just a Drill

Press release from Humboldt County:

Airport Exercise_thumbThe Humboldt County Aviation Division will be holding a live emergency drill at the California Redwood Coast – Humboldt County Airport on Wednesday, Sept. 23 from 1 pm to approximately 3 pm. Federal Aviation Regulation Part 139 requires that the airport hold a live drill once every three years, and this drill was last conducted at the airport in 2012.

During the drill, several emergency agencies and vehicles will be responding to a simulated aircraft accident on airport grounds. If you are near the airport during the drill, you may hear sirens or other loud noises associated with a typical emergency response. The drill will include real-time response, mock injuries, and challenging issues to make the drill a true training event for the participating agencies.

If you have questions, please contact the airport at 707-839-5401.
