The San Francisco International Airport (SFO) announced plans to conduct its annual full-scale emergency exercise on Wednesday, October 2nd. The exercise will test response and recovery efforts following a simulated terrorist attack involving chemical weapons, utilizing the Airport’s Boeing 767 widebody training aircraft with volunteers role-playing as passengers. The exercise will include the coordination of two dozen different agencies, including Airport staff, airlines, the San Francisco Fire Department Airport Division, the San Francisco Police Department Airport Bureau, local area hospitals, mutual aid units from San Mateo County, and state and federal agencies.
