On March 5 2014, the Annual Emergency Fire Exercise took place at OFC with the participation of all responding parties i.e. Athens International Airport (AIA), AIA Fire Department, HCAA, AIA Police Depertment, and AIA EKAV as per the detailed scenario that was jointly elaborated by the above mentioned bodies and was written by AIA. The exercise was also attended by the airport community representatives, the state authorities as well as by officials of the fuel companies and the oil refineries.
This year’s exercise scenario involved ignition and explosion of fuel Tank No 2 (with fuel leakage in the Tanks) during JET A-1 delivery via Pipeline and the injury of 1 OFC employee.
At the end of the exercise there was a short valuation discussion and the overall result was very satisfactory. A special mention of the event was included in 'High Lights', Athens International Airport Newsletter (issue Jan-May 2014).
