Logan International Airport - L.E.A.P Exercise

The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) and our partners at Boston Logan Airport are extending an invitation to Medical Reserve Corps of Massachusetts to be part of a unique and valuable emergency preparedness learning opportunity.

Recent events worldwide underscore the need to be prepared for a real or perceived violent event in our community. To test our preparedness, Massport is sponsoring the Logan Emergency Action Plan – LEAP Exercise.  We are seeking volunteers to assist our 1st responders in a Full-Scale Active Shooter / Hostile Event training exercise.  The exercise will take place on Tuesday, September 26, from 8 PM – 2:30AM (overnight), at Logan International Airport.  We welcome Medical Reserve Corps participation in this exercise to assist us in testing real-time response and preparedness.  This is a great hands-on learning experience for our community. Briefings from senior federal and state law enforcement officials will be given prior to the exercise which will provide our volunteers with a comprehensive understanding of how to react to a hostile event from the perspective of a civilian, passenger, tenant or first responder.
