The Decatur Airport (DEC), in conjunction with local emergency responders will conduct a full-scale triennial exercise on Saturday morning, June 5, 2021.

The exercise is designed to test the Airport’s readiness to respond to an aircraft incident on the airfield. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires the airport to exercise the emergency plan once every three years.

This will be a live role play event testing the resources of our local first responders. Due to COVID the airport will be using mannequins as victims this year.

Please use caution around the Airport on Saturday morning. Multiple agencies will be involved with the drill and will be utilizing emergency equipment. This is supervised training and not an actual emergency.
