On March 16, 2024, Lübeck Airport will conduct a periodic large-scale emergency exercise. This takes place in a special area of ​​the airport.

Lübeck Airport and the Lübeck rescue workers will once again conduct an emergency exercise on the airport grounds in Lübeck on Saturday, March 16, 2024. As part of the exercise, several fire brigade, rescue service and civil protection vehicles will drive to the airport with flashing lights - but there will never be any danger or cause for alarm for the residents.

Such exercises must be carried out at regular intervals in accordance with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and European regulations of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). “During exercises of this type, we check in particular whether communication between internal and external rescue organizations works and whether the capacities deployed are sufficient,” explains Stefanie Eggers, spokeswoman for the airport.

In addition to Lübeck Airport, the airport staff and the airport fire department as well as the Lübeck professional fire department, the Wulfsdorf-Vorrade and Krummesse volunteer fire departments will also take part. Also involved are the information and communication component (I&C group) of the Lübeck fire department as well as emergency services from the aid organizations of the German Red Cross, the Johanniter accident aid and the Malteser relief service.

During the exercise period, the volunteer fire brigades from Moisling and Vorwerk will ensure basic protection in the guard area. The exercise itself takes place exclusively in the cordoned off security area of ​​the airport premises. An obstruction to road traffic is therefore not expected.
