This paper serves as a guide for planning airport disaster drills, particularly at the major air carrier airports. Their recommendations are subject to change according to the needs of the individual airport and the particular circumstances that may be present. Basically, the recommendations are founded on the experience gained by participation in planning and carrying out five separate emergency on disaster drills (Oakland International Airport-1, San Francisco International Airport-2, Los Angeles International Airport-2). The authors also have been involved in a total of three additional disaster drills in California and have been involved in one way or another in an additional 19 airport disaster drills throughout the United States. The presentation is divided into segments according to activity. However, it should be noted that there is a cohesiveness necessary for disaster planning if the drill is to be successful.
