NORTH TEXAS (KRLD/CBSDFW.COM) – The bombing at the Moscow Airport might have made some North Texans a bit nervous at the though of their next trip to the airport to pick up a passenger.
Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport spokesperson David Magana told NewsRadio 1080 KRLD that since September 11th security at DFW Airport involves a collective effort, specialized training the eyes and ears of everyone.
“We even involve airport employees, airline employees and that kind of thing to pass the information along to them [security] as far as odd or interesting things to watch for,” he explained.
Magana admits you can’t prevent a quick action like the one in Moscow, but wants passengers to rest assured that the airport has plenty of resources in places, even outside the traditional security checkpoints.
“You want to make sure that you maintain some element of change and some element of flexibility in your security program, so that you can address the changing threat,”
Magana says security is a collective effort that requires the help of everyone to report anything suspicious. “We just try to be vigilant. We try to make sure that we’re up to speed on all of the intelligence out there and all of the good information that gets filtered around.”
