Emergency drill

To be prepared in the event of an emergency: extensive emergency drill “Alpha 8” with around 350 participants.

During a simulated plane crash last Friday, various authorities, departments and emergency services successfully practised for an emergency at Graz Airport.

The emergency drill had several objectives. After the long coronavirus period in particular, when communication and coordination were restricted and more impersonal, great emphasis was attached to precisely these factors.

The drill will shed light on the cooperation between the different areas and emergency services at all levels, as well as the organisation structures and procedures, in order to achieve improvements for the future together.

Around 350 people with approximately 30 emergency and rescue vehicles played an active part in this drill.

More about the scenario, the participating organisations and comments can be found in the Press Release.
