THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE BERGAMO HEALTH PROTECTION AGENCY (ATS) AT MILAN BERGAMO AIRPORT

It was an opportunity to focus on the various aspects of close collaboration between the airport and the local area from a health point of view, in relation to a number of fields ranging from the management of large-scale emergencies to the daily health coverage of the Airport First Aid Services and the office of the Border Maritime and Aviation Health Unit of the Ministry of Health (USMAF), up to the assessment and control of standard airport activities and their potential effects on health. The meeting also examined the LIFE Ip2020 - AZ E12 Project, which was introduced about two years ago by the State Forestry Corps through an initiative run by the Lombardy Region, which identified Milan Bergamo Airport (BGY) as the pilot airport for the information, education and prevention campaign regarding the preservation of biodiversity and the monitoring of the introduction of invasive species.

Lastly, another important point was the activity in support of passengers with reduced mobility, conducted via the constant sharing of aspects of assistance to disabled people with the leading associations, which offers preferential access and guarantees special assistance services, as well as access to dedicated parking areas.

In this area, SACBO was the first airport management company to have introduced the protocol for assistance to passengers with autism, for which it was awarded by the Bergamo Association of Italian Industries (Confindustria) as the promoter of the best social project in 2017.
