Nashville Airport To Conduct Full-scale Disaster Exercise April 21


Nashville International Airport (BNA) will conduct a full-scale disaster exercise Tuesday, April 21, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. BNA advises members of the public that the aircraft, emergency vehicles and other equipment on Runway 13-31, which is visible from I-40 and the Briley Parkway interchange, will be for staging a simulation of an aircraft disaster and will not be associated with an actual emergency situation.

Federal Aviation Administration regulations mandate airports to conduct full-scale emergency exercises every three years, with annual tabletop exercises in the off years. A team of mutual-aid agencies developed a scenario that includes components related to environmental mitigation, safety, security, casualties, injuries, mental health, communications and incident management. The exercise will test the effectiveness of the response plans and procedures of the airport and participating agencies.

In addition to 200 community volunteers, numerous agencies and companies will participate in or observe the drill. For more details, click on the following link: http://flynashville.com/cfpress/press/MNAA_420_04082009.pdf

Nashville Airport terminal roadway project update



April 20 through end of May:

Monday through Saturday
10am – 11am

Allow extra time when traveling to the airport during this time and watch for construction detour and speed limit signs. The blast time may vary as the project progresses, so please look for updates on our Web site, www.flynashville.com.

Background on Terminal Roadway Project
Phase I of the Terminal Access Roadway Improvements (TARI) Project began in October 2008 and is expected to be completed in the fall of 2009. TARI is designed to improve traffic conditions on Terminal Ring Road, the one-way thoroughfare that surrounds the airport’s short and long-term parking lots and provides access to the terminal. TARI will eliminate the need for vehicles to merge and weave through multiple lanes of traffic on Ring Road, and will improve ingress/egress from both I-40 and Donelson Pike.
