The Virgin Islands Port Authority will be conducting a simulated emergency drill at the Cyril E.

This drill is also a requirement to maintain the airport’s certification under the Federal Aviation Administration’s Code of Federal Regulations Section 14 part 139.

The media is invited to provide coverage of the event and must present press credentials by 9 a.m. at the Isiah Phillips Fire Station located on the north ramp of the King Airport (adjacent to the VI Police Department’s Special Operations Bureau Command “Zone B”).  Contact the VIPA public relations office at (340) 774-1629 or info@viport.com for more information.
