    The simulation will run for an hour and includes a supposedly distressed aircraft on a taxiway, as well as participation of emergency vehicles and personnel to make use of warning lights and audible alarms.

    “It will simulate an emergency alert air type 4A (stricken aircraft within the airport perimeter), which involves the activation of protocols established in the emergency plan and human deployment, as well as the movement of ambulances to and from hospitals close to the airport, “said AERIS.

    According to the company, which manages the airport concession, these exercises should be done every two years at international airports to meet ICAO standards.

    Juan Santamaria Airport, which is located on the outskirts of San Jose, said that the drill will take place at noon (1800 GMT), at which time there is less air traffic.
