Billings Logan International Airport will conduct active shooter training with law enforcement agencies and airport officials today.  Assistant Director of Aviation and Transit Shane Ketterling said the exercise will take place in the baggage claim area at 10 a.m.  KTVQ.com reports that the airport will remain open, but the public is not invited to participate.

 

 

Due to security issues and execution of the training, details of exactly how the exercise will be conducted won’t be revealed.  Ketterling said it is a requirement that airport officials and emergency responders train for a catastrophic event.  Following the Fort Lauderdale shooting in that airport’s baggage claim area in January, Ketterling said being prepared for an active shooter situation is a must for local law enforcement and airport staff.  Logan International officials chose to conduct the exercise from 10 to 11:30 this morning.
