Gearing for its Aerodrome Certification, Laoag International Airport (LIA) officials and employees staged a successful series of emergency drills. The drills are part of the requirements for LIA’s application to become Aerodrome-certified. The drills aim to ensure LIA’s preparedness, along with their mutual aid partners, to effectively and safely respond to an aircraft accident at the airport or areas within its vicinity. The drills also hone LIA’s capabilities on “alert and alarm”; communications; onsite incident management (ICS); rescue, triage and treatment; transportation to medical facilities; and site security.
