NEW YORK CITY (PIX11) — An emergency drill is expected to draw several ambulances, fire trucks and police cars to John F. Kennedy International Airport Tuesday for an exercise that won’t affect travel but may spark concern among the public.
That’s why the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is giving passengers and drivers forewarning.
The drill is scheduled to last from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and will include simulated smoke and “numerous emergency vehicles,” the agency said.
Air travel is not expected to be affected by the drill, which is meant to test the airport’s emergency plan for mutual aid response. Airport personnel and local emergency crews will train together along with federal and state partners, the agency said.
