After two blasts hit Brussels’ Zaventem Airport during Tuesday morning rush, the country issued a Level 4 alert, which means “serious and imminent attack.”
After the explosion, emergency response teams and security began evacuating the airports, looking for survivors, and searching for evidence.
More than 30 people died, and over 200 others were identified as injured or severely wounded.
"What we feared has happened — we were hit by blind attacks," Prime Minister Charles Michel said during a news conference on Tuesday.
There was no warning. There was no way to stop the attack. That is what scares us.
Airports are targets.
Our question to you is, is your airport operation prepared?
No matter the size of your airport, is your operation able to mitigate an incident as small as a slip and fall or as large as a major terrorist attack?
Granted, you can never be fully prepared for “blind attacks.” However, if one occurred at your airport – you can be ready.
You must have proactive measures in place.
Unfortunately, many airports do not have the tools to efficiently handle these type of scenarios.
That changes today.
We are going to share two incident management solutions that can help your airport mitigate incidents.
