This also includes having an emergency team composed of the Town of Peace River Fire Department, RCMP and EMS/AHS coordinating together and dedicated to the performers safety.
Are there many death happening at air shows?
According to the ICAS (International Council of Airshows), no spectators have died at an air show since the 1950s thanks to the safety measures put in place by various organizations. Among other things, it is forbidden to perform maneuvers towards the crowd, and a regulatory distance must be maintained at all times between aircraft in flight and spectators. However, the risks are greater for pilots. Evaluations are regularly conducted to ensure that they know the maneuvers they must perform by heart.
Is the consumption of cannabis allowed on the event grounds?
Consumption of both tobacco and cannabis will be restricted in areas frequented by children and therefore, since the air show is a family-friendly event, there will be no consumption of either on air show grounds as well as along the airport fence on public grounds.
What do I do if I loose something on the event grounds?
If you find an item that does not belong to you, please locate a volunteer to give it to them, and it will be taken to the lost and found center.
If you lose an item, please approach a volunteer, who will direct you to the lost and found center.
