The A.B. Won Pat International Airport sent out an advisory Wednesday morning letting the general public, tenants, vendors and stakeholders know of a full-scale exercise to test the airport authority’s response to an emergency. As part of an Airport Operator’s certification, the FSE is required to be executed every three years under Federal Air Regulations (FAR) Part 139.

The drill is ongoing between 8am and 12pm Wednesday.

GIAA officials say emergency responders from Airport Firefighters and Police, Guam Fire Department, and Guam Police Department will be highly active in the area, simulating response activity to an airport emergency scenario.

The Public and Airport Stakeholders are advised in advance of this planned emergency response drill, and to anticipate simulated high activity on roadways and on the airfield, as part of this Full-Scale Exercise
