Branson Airport trains for disaster

The Branson Airport is making sure they are prepared for any emergency that might occur.

The airport recently tested the Emergency Response Preparedness plan with the help of a number of community partners.

More than 30 area agencies, over 60 emergency management personnel and about 150 community volunteers worked through drills at the Branson Airport, to demonstrate preparedness in the unlikely event of an emergency.

The drill, which lasted about five hours, was held on the east side of the airfield.

Following the drill, the Airport was able to utilize the University of Missouri's aircraft live fire simulator to hold rescue and firefighting training for airport staff and local fire departments.

“This exercise is important to build hands-on situational awareness in the unlikely event of an aircraft emergency in the area," said Jesse Fosnaugh, Branson Airport deputy director, prior to the event.
