Shannon Airport, County Clare.
Members of An Garda Siochana and Defence Forces take part in a ‘bilateral training exercise’ facilitated by Shannon Airport Authority.
The focus of the exercise is to examine “the response to a simulated major armed incident by local Gardaí, Garda operational and strategic command personnel, ERU (Emergency Response Unit), ASU (Regional Armed Support Unit) and the Garda Air Support Unit”.
The exercises include the Defence Forces ‘tri-service assets’ including Army perimeter security and EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal), Naval Service and Air Corps assets and Shannon Airport Police personnel.
Gives them a day out.
