Exercise Exercise Exercise! YVR and partners simulating full-scale emergency exercise

On September 29th, YVR will be hosting an airport-wide exercise that will simulate an emergency scenario. The safety and security of our passengers and employees is our top priority at YVR and holding large-scale exercises is one way that we maintain our high emergency response standards. The exercise includes representation from more than 20 of YVR’s agency partners in the Lower Mainland.

You may see activity on Sea Island along Miller Road from approximately 7:00am to 4:00pm PT. Signs will be posted around the site location alerting the community to the exercise.

Hosting full-scale exercises is a key part of YVR’s Emergency Management Plan. By simulating emergency situations, we can better prepare for the unlikely event of a real-life emergency at YVR.

If you see anything around the large-scale emergency simulation there will be the preface of Exercise Exercise, Exercise.

Airport operations will not be affected.
