What's Going On

Safety Spotlight Three – Security Safety

October 04, 2017   |   (0)

Every airport, including YYC Calgary International Airport, has a number of layers of security enforcement to ensure  that the safety and security of our passengers, employees and guests is of the utmost importance. Some of the different agencies reinforcing security at YYC include:

  • The Calgary Airport Authority’s Security and Emergency Preparedness team
  • Calgary Police Service (CPS)
  • Canadian Corps of Commissionaires (CCoC)
  • Canadian Air Transport Security Association (CATSA)
  • Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA)
  • U.S. Customs Border and Protection (U.S. CBP)

However, security is not left with these agencies alone. We all play an important role in ensuring our airport and passengers are safe and secure. What can you do to pitch in?

The top three ways you can contribute to the overall safety at YYC are:

  • Prevent piggybacking: Ensure no one follows you through a security controlled area without swiping a RAIC.
  • Monitor suspicious persons, vehicles, bags and activities: If you witness a suspicious activity report it immediately to our Security Operations Centre at 7400.
  • Ask for Identification: You are encouraged to ask for ID if you suspect someone in a Restricted Area does not have a work-related purpose (need and right) to be there.
