    I attended a disaster management seminar recently, where the guest speaker was a ranking member of Qantas security.
    The main topic was Bali, and the role Qantas took in the site management and evacuation of persons back to Aust. (he had some amazing slides.... all marked as "Qantas - CONFIDENTAL")

    One of this gentleman's points, was that in the event of a 'bomb scare' at an airport...... the current thinking now, is NEVER leave the terminal and head for the carkpark! You should move away from the terminal and wait well clear of any motor vehicles (especially TAXIS!!!) You should attempt to keep away from large groups of people standing in the one spot. Space out, and wait for further instruction. At the same time, be aware of your immediate surroundings.
    This is the tragic experience of Bali, and some other terrorist activity, where a 'bomb scare' is sounded, or a small explosive charge is detonated with the purpose of sending large numbers of people into a "killing ground" for the main explosive charge to take out the maximum number of casualties.

    Qantas have a very comprehensive system of 'event, incident and disaster' management plans for every possible occurence. After attending this seminar, and learning of how Qantas handles 'problems'..... I feel quite secure travelling with them!

    safe travelling....
