Entebbe Airport To Conduct Full-Scale Emergency Exercise Today

Uganda Civil Aviation Authority (UCAA) in conjunction with industry stakeholders is scheduled to conduct a full-scale emergency exercise in the morning hours of Friday, November 4, 2022 to test the readiness of Entebbe International Airport in handling unforeseen situations.

“Residents of Entebbe, Kampala and surrounding areas are likely to see smoke, movement of ambulances with blazing sirens to and from Entebbe as part of the exercise. Passengers and the general public are urged not be alarmed,” UCAA said in a statement.

It adds that the exercise is a mandatory requirement for international airports of countries that are contracting member states of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) to test on-scene coordination between the airport, airlines and emergency responders, among others.
