ORLANDO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT BECOMES FIRST
EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACCREDITED AIRPORT
ORLANDO, FL. – The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, the agency that oversees Orlando
International Airport, has become the first-ever airport operation to earn full accreditation by the
Emergency Management Accreditation Program (EMAP).
“Receiving this certification speaks volumes to the dedication and hard work of the Authority’s emergency
management team and our partners,” said Phil Brown, the Authority’s Chief Executive Officer. “As the
busiest airport in the state of Florida, receiving this accreditation should provide an extra layer of comfort
for the traveling public because they can know that Orlando International is prepared to respond to any
emergency situation.”
To obtain EMAP certification, the highest honor for emergency management and the only accreditation
process for emergency management programs, applicants must demonstrate through self-assessment,
documentation and peer assessment verification that its program meets the Emergency Management
Standard, which is designed to be flexible so a variety of agencies and companies can tailor it to their
needs, risks, resources and size.
All agencies seeking to receive the accreditation are judged against the Program’s 64 industry-wide
standards, which assess and cover a variety of areas including Program Management, administration
and finance, prevention, communications and warning, training, and incident management among others.
Orlando International emergency management leaders began the accreditation process in February
2017, fueled by a motivation to build a new emergency management program at the airport. Benefits
include increased engagement with airport community stakeholders and strengthened plans and
processes.
“This is an incredible honor for the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority to manage the first airport to
achieve this prestigious accreditation by the Emergency Management Accreditation Program,” said Keila
Walker-Denis, the Authority’s Assistant Director of Airport Operations – Emergency Management. “This
accomplishment is a direct reflection of the hard work and commitment by the Aviation Authority and our
airport partners in building a prepared and resilient community, emphasizing our dedication to the safety
of our Employees and the traveling public that visit our world-class facility.”
Other agencies or organizations to recently receive the accreditation include the City of Orlando, the
states of New York and Delaware, and the Philadelphia District of the United States Army Corps of
Engineers. Orlando International is proud to be the first-ever accredited airport.
