Emergency plans will be tested during an exercise at Norwich Airport tomorrow evening.
Airport employees as well as staff from Norfolk Constabulary, Norfolk Fire Service, East of England Ambulance Service, British Red Cross and local authorities will be involved in the exercise.
It is being held to so multi-agency working can be practiced and evaluated during the exercise.
