Emergencies were introduced in Alpha 36, which also brought fences, ground and air animals, bird strike prevention systems (BSPSs), hangars, airport police stations, emergency response stations, police cars, ambulances, fire trucks.
Emergencies will occur from time to time. It will require the player to divert their attention and address the relevant issues that pop up during such an event. Should the player fail properly manage and handle the situation within a given time, the player's airport will take a penalty, in the form of a security rating dip, and a fine of a few thousand dollars. The severity of this penalty will vary depending on one's performance and will be notified via a report through the email.
Emergencies will only start occurring if:
- The game has been running for at least a few in-game hours
- The commercial license has been researched
Some emergencies need handling while others just require you to wait a certain amount of time.
