Toowoomba City Aerodrome exercise a valuable training day

It might have been a simulated emergency, but today’s Toowoomba City Aerodrome training exercise was treated as if it were a real incident.

A simulated aircraft refuelling fire unfolded for the Joint Emergency Services Training Exercise (JESTEX) 2019 on the Aerodrome’s refuelling apron.

Toowoomba Regional Council Infrastructure Services portfolio leader Cr James O’Shea said Council was required to stage regular emergency exercises to comply with Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) regulations.

Cr O’Shea said the aim of the day was to practise the implementation of the Toowoomba City Aerodrome Emergency Plan.
