According to the above, the airport sector has multiple procedures of action according to the level of urgency per incident, and has a command group specialized in all types of incidents that can be produced on the air side (runways, approach, takeoff, etc.) Or land side (terminals, parking, luggage, etc.). Emergency preparedness is a central, even critical issue for the airport sector. Comprehensive planning and monitoring of established protocols effectively plays a crucial role in the prevention of major emergencies and, more importantly, in containing crisis situations once they emerge.
Due to the large number of people that circulate through these facilities on a daily basis, as well as companies or entities linked to airport services, a high security need and protocols are generated to maintain order and action defined in crisis situations. Incidents occur continuously in common areas as well as in the aeronautical part that must be prevented and counteracted in an effective and safe way.
❖ Main land side risks: Operational, technological, accident, assault, fire, terrorism, drugs, smuggling, public health, etc.
❖ Main air side risks: Aircraft problems, health alert, adverse weather, equipment failure, accidents, leaks, lack of supply, etc.
