Gold Coast Airport 2013 Emergency Exercise

More than 130 airport staff including the Gold Coast Airport response staff, Airport Fire Service, AFP, The Police, Fire and Ambulance crews from both QLD and NSW and airlines attended the Gold Coast Airport Emergency Exercise on Wednesday 21st August, 2013. This exercise training scenario was to test the effectiveness of the Airport Emergency Plan (AEP) and involved emergency agencies and individuals who would normally respond to a real-time emergency.

Emergency exercises enable agencies to practice annually their response, command, coordination and control functions through a range of scenarios. This year’s exercise was successfully based on a scenario developed by the Airport Emergency Committee, and involved a suspicious bag being found with a simulated explosion in the Terminal which was then attended by airport stakeholders and emergency services.

Aviation Security Identification Card (ASIC)
An Aviation Security Identification Card, known as an ASIC, is an identification card which is used to identify a person who has been the subject of a background check. An ASIC is required to obtain unescorted access to the secure airside areas of security controlled airports that have regular public transport (RPT) services. ASICs are valid for up to two years.

The ASIC scheme is a layer of security that ensures that only people who have been background checked to a certain level are permitted to be in the secure areas of airports. The ASIC scheme aims to reduce the risk of unlawful interference with aviation, not just terrorism.
