During poor weather conditions, an Airbus A320 lands hard on the southern runway at BER and a fire breaks out. A Deutsche Flugsicherung (DFS) air-traffic controller in the tower notifies the airport fire service. The airport fire service headquarters then inform all of the other command centres in accordance with the Berlin Brandenburg Airport emergency plan. The airport fire service is called out and starts rescuing passengers and fighting the fire at the aircraft. The regional fire and rescue services arrive at the agreed meeting and control points and support the rescue measures performed by the airport fire service.
As in a real emergency, the emergency operations centre in the new West Fire Station at Berlin Brandenburg Airport provides the operational command with assistance on site. This operations centre is manned by a representative of each of the services involved enabling swift and precise organisational co-ordination of the subsequent airport processes.
