UTA has a comprehensive emergency management program to keep you and our passenger safe. Preparation is critical for effective emergency management. Which is why we collaborate with stakeholders and other emergency response partners several times a year in planning full-scale emergency response exercises. The situations of these exercises range in scale and scope which helps us plan effective emergency responses.
