Practices in Airport Emergency Plans

The objective of this synthesis was to gather information about the issues and challenges experienced by airport managers, with airport emergency plans as useful and actionable documents for supporting airports in defining roles and responsibilities of stakeholders during emergencies, identifying specific threats that could affect airports, and establishing communication protocols for the airport community. The audience for this timely resource is the airport community and stakeholders. The report gathers relevant data specific to airport emergency plan practices that can be applied effectively to other airports, including general aviation airports, whether or not they are required to maintain an airport emergency plan. The information contained in this synthesis was obtained using four sources. First, a literature review compiled relevant existing research about the topic. Second, the consultant participated in an in-person plenary panel discussion with 175 attendees. Third, the consultant also surveyed 81 airport representatives from 62 airports. Fourth, the consultant conducted interviews with airport officials.
