Disaster drill planned for Fargo Airport – InForum

FARGO – Hector International Airport will conduct a disaster drill on Tuesday, May 21, at 10 a.m., according to a news release.

The exercise, which takes place every three years, will last two hours, the Hector International Airport fire brigade said. There will be multiple emergency vehicles at and near the northern Fargo airport.

“Citizens of Fargo-Moorhead should not be alarmed or report an emergency at the airport as this is a contained and planned exercise,” the statement said.

The exercise is being conducted to meet Federal Aviation Administration requirements, the release said.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under the byline “staff.” Often the byline “staff” is used when rewriting basic news briefs that come from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and require little or no reporting. Sometimes this byline is used when a news story contains multiple authors or when the story is formed by merging previously reported news from different sources. If outside sources are used, this will be noted in the story.
