Kochi airport conducts mock drill to detect radiological materials

Kochi: The Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) on Thursday conducted a mock drill to test the efficiency of the security forces in preventing the transmission of radiological materials at the airport.

As per reports by news agency ANI, the mock drill was focused on determining the accuracy of detecting the radiological material at the airport and how the airport security forces would cope with the interference and transmission of radiological data.

CIAL director was quoted by ANI as saying, “This mock drill was conducted to check the efficacy of security forces in detecting the radiological material at our airport.”

The mock drill was planned in such a way that import consignments (a collection of goods to be sent) arrived at the cargo.

However, when the import consignments were exiting through the cargo after clearance, the radiological vehicle monitoring system was alerted, indicating the beginning of the exercise, following which all the concerned parties, including the airport control staff, the fire department, the CISF squad, state police and the state fire department were alerted.
