Synthesis of Information Related to Airport Problems. Topic S04-12. Airport Emergency Post-event Recovery Practices

Airport operators participate in and host response and recovery operations for many types of events, including aircraft incidents/accidents, natural disasters, and acts of violence. People, facilities, operations and management, and preparedness are critical considerations for rapid recovery and for business continuity. The focus of this synthesis is: (1) Care of employees, tenants, traveling public and stakeholders; (2) Minimizing disruption of facilities; (3) Common objectives throughout the incident management process; (4) Integrated training and exercises, multi-agency collaboration, and after-action analysis. The objective of this synthesis is to gather commonalities and effective practices from representative commercial and general aviation airports regarding post-event recovery. The target audience for this synthesis is airport management and key stakeholders responsible and accountable for incident response and recovery.
