Toronto Pearson Airport Prepares for Emergency Exercise: Residents Advised of Unusual Activity
Toronto Pearson International Airport has issued a notice to residents, informing them about an upcoming event that may involve some “unusual activity” around the airport. However, authorities emphasize that there is no need for concern. As part of their annual preparedness initiatives, Toronto Pearson will be conducting a full-scale emergency exercise to test the airport’s response to various situations.
Scheduled to take place on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., this year’s simulation will simulate a plane crash scenario. Approximately 400 airport staff and volunteers will actively participate, assuming roles as crew members and passengers of the simulated crashed aircraft. First responders from Peel Region and Toronto will also be present at the event to contribute to the exercise.
