MINOT — The Minot International Airport will conduct a full-scale emergency exercise on June 22 from approximately 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The exercise will be held in conjunction with a number of local agencies, including the Minot Police Department, Minot Fire Department, City of Minot Public Works Department, Trinity Health, Community Ambulance, Ward County Emergency Management, Enbridge, N.D. Highway Patrol, and Minot Air Force Base.

Airport officials are seeking volunteers to take part in the exercise, including playing the role of victims. Anyone interested should go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7SRD2CD to register for the event.

While the event is only a drill, it will be broadcast across emergency channels as a real event and realistic simulations such as smoke and sirens will be used. Airport officials ask that members of the public refrain from coming to the airport to watch the exercise, and to refrain from calling 911 regarding the simulation. Also, passengers at the airport that day should not panic if they witness elements of the simulated emergency and response.

The Federal Aviation Administration requires the airport to complete a full-scale emergency training exercise every three years.
