Incident at Regina, SK (ATM - operations)


1998-01-28: An Air BC BAe 146 that was parked in front of the Regina FSS buiding was being provided power from a ground power unit, whose exhaust fumes entered the working area of the FSS staff. The two staff on duty at the time became nauseous, and one of them became physically ill. The on-call supervisor authorized the evacuation of the building, and the back-up site was operating by 0933Z. The ground power unit was subsequently turned off, the FSS building aired out, and regular services resumed at 1046Z. A B737 landed during this time without airport advisory service, and two overflying a/c received enroute service from other facilities. OPI - ANS and Airspace UPDATE This has been an ongoing situation since the late 1980's and has been referred to the Airport Manager and the Operational Health and Safety committee for discussion. The NavCanada sector manager is aware of the situation and is following up.
