Victoria’s emergency services agencies will hold a training drill at Melbourne Airport this morning.

The exercise will bring together firefighters, paramedics, police officers and other emergency services agencies to enhance situational awareness at the airport and enhance preparedness in the event of a multi-agency event.

The training drill will commence around 9am and finish at about midday.

MFB Community Resilience Commander John Cranston said exercises of this nature were regularly held at major facilities such as Melbourne Airport.

“It’s important for Victoria’s emergency services agencies to train together regularly to improve interoperability and ensure emergency procedures are tested,” he said.

“The community should not be concerned if they see a large number of fire trucks and other emergency vehicles around Melbourne Airport during this time”.
