Airports sought for participation in disaster preparedness study

It’s not NextGen per se, but safety-minded airports may want to consider joining an interesting study being launched by American Public University professor Jim Smith. Smith believes that U.S. airports can do a better job of coordinating with local and regional emergency management agencies around non-aviation disasters (hurricanes, etc.), and has already secured the cooperation of ANC, ATL, CLT, IAH, IND, JFK, LAX, SFO, and many others. All U.S. airports may participate; deadline to get on board is Dec 1, 2008.
