Luciano: CIA ready for emergencies



CLARK FREEPORT — Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC) president Victor Jose Luciano assured that major airport in Zambales is ready to handle any type of emergency situation.

Luciano issued the statement during the opening of the three-day 3rd Air Crash Drill Full Scale Exercise at the Officer’s Club here Tuesday.

“Yes, Clark Airport is ready to handle such emergency disasters as we are rated Category 9 by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO),” he said.

Luciano said the exercise, a requirement of ICAO, will be held every two years to prepare airport personnel as well as government people and private individuals of airport related emergency situations.

He said the Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) will be providing two new fire trucks estimated to cost P200 million to boost the capabilities of the airport in handling airport emergency. At present, Clark Airport has four fire trucks and two ambulances.

He also said the actual exercise would be held on August 15, where participants will showcase their capabilities in handling disasters at the runways of the airport.

Close to 500 firemen, including several teams from airlines and medical institutions, will participate in the emergency simulation on Thursday.

The exercise is supported by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), and the Philippine National Red Cross (PNR).

The Clark Airport as an International Airport is mandated to conduct a full-scale aerodrome exercise, a requirement of ICAO on Airport Emergency Planning, to test the reliability of the approved and adopted CIAC Aircraft Emergency Rescue Organization Manual (CIAC-AEROM).

Luciano explained that the drill will test the adequacy of personnel in the event of aircraft accident, the efficiency of the installed communication facilities of the airport, and the response of teams from government and non-government organizations.

CIAC started holding Air Crash Drills since 2003 and in March 2008, fire fighters, security, airlines and medical teams showcased their skills and readiness in handling emergency crisis.

With this, Clark Airport was rated Category 9 by the ICAO.

Federico Primero Jr., CIAC Emergency Services Department (ESD) manager, said mocked-up aircrafts and two fire pits will be set up between the primary and secondary runways of the airport.

“This emergency simulation will take place during the exercise that will test the skills of the fire fighters, security, airlines and medical teams in dealing with the aircraft that crash landed at the runways of Clark Airport,” Primero added.

Participants include firemen, medical teams and rescuers from Angeles City; Magalang town and Mabalacat City in Pampanga province; and Bamban, Capas and Concepcion in Tarlac province.

The Philippine National Police, Angeles University Foundation Hospital, Mount Carmel Medical Center and Ospital Ning Angeles will also participate in the event.

Carriers including Air Asia Philippines, Air Asia Malaysia, Cebu Pacific Air, Tiger Air Philippines, Asiana Airlines, Dragon Air and Jin Air are also among the participants.

The air crash drill is also supported by Smart Communications, SM City Clark, Aerotech Industries Philippines Inc., and Ayala owned Marquee Mall.
