WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — Officials at T.F. Green Airport in Warwick are planning a simulated disaster to practice the airport’s emergency plan.
They’ll be joined during Thursday’s emergency preparedness exercise by more than a dozen agencies, including police, the Department of Health, fire departments and other groups.
The exercise will be held in the airport’s second-floor ticketing area, after all passengers have checked into their flights for the day. It is expected to last until midnight, and the area will be closed to the public during that time.
The airport says no flights will be affected.
Peter Frazier, interim president and CEO of the Rhode Island Airport Corp. says the exercise will allow them to evaluate how the airport communicates and works with first responders.
