Snowstorm Case Study

Snowstorm Case Study

Introduction
It is imperative for Airport Management to ensure the safety of operations at their facilities during intense snowstorms and other bad weather situations. This involves job performance according to accepted principles, ensuring a high standard of care, providing standards requiring state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, and maintaining qualified crews. For your assignment you will be expected to develop a viable snow and ice control plan based off of the provided case study.
Instructions
For this assignment (500-850 words) you will develop a snow and ice control plan based on the case study information provided below. Remember to make sure safety is your first priority. Research appropriate snow removal procedures and examine assigned readings to develop an effective snow and ice control plan.
Snowstorm Case Study:
Early February, 4:38pm, An Airport in Minnesota.
Your Role: Airport Operations Supervisor
A very strong, localized lake effect snowstorm has occurred at the airport you manage. In a 28-hour period approximately 19 inches of snowfall have already been recorded. Your snowplow operators are tired as they have been removing snow on and off for over a day.
Although most runways are now open, they were closed and planes were grounded for 3 hours earlier this morning. There have been dozens of delayed and cancelled flights.
Another snowstorm is expected to hit the airport around midnight. Passengers are becoming very anxious and frustrated as they realize the may have to spend the night at the airport.
