MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – If you see emergency and public safety vehicles and personnel around the airport Saturday, don’t panic – it’s part of a full-scale emergency exercise.

According to a Facebook post from the Myrtle Beach International Airport, the exercise will run from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., and is required by the Federal Aviation Administration every three years.

The exercise will be held inside the airfield fence and is not open to the public, the post states. Volunteers will participate as passengers, some with realistic mock injuries. There will also be an influx of public safety vehicles and personnel around the airport.

The exercise will not impact the airport’s day-to-day operations.

“There is no need for concern, it is just an exercise,” the post states.
