Mandatory Airport Employee Emergency​ Training (AEET) Ongoing 

On May 6, 2019, the National Association of Counties (NACo) announced that FLL's new Airport Employee Emergency Training (AEET) Program won a 2019 Achievement Award in the Personnel Management, Employment, and Training category. The Broward County Aviation Department (BCAD) launched the innovative industry-leading training program in August 2018 to better prepare airport employees to respond to emergencies such as active threats, hurricanes, and aircraft incidents.

"Congratulations to everyone involved in developing this innovative program! Your hard work will yield positive results for Broward County residents," a NACo official said. 

AEET Background Information

BCAD launched its innovative industry-leading Airport Employee Emergency Training (AEET) training program on August 15, 2018, to better prepare employees to respond to emergencies such as active threats, hurricanes, and aircraft incidents. More than 17,000 employees who routinely work at FLL have taken the new training program as of the end of 2018. 

This first-of-its-kind training program was approved and endorsed by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners for all employees who regularly work at FLL or who have Security Identification Display Area (SIDA) badges and/or Public Area Business Purpose (PABP) credentials. Airport employees and all impacted constituents are required to take AEET every two years. 

Employees can access and complete this mandatory training from any device with internet access. The approximately 2.5-hour program consists of six modules covering topics such as FLL’s emergency response plans, communications during emergencies, basic first aid, customer service tips, and recognizing human trafficking.

Employee Lot Separation

In an effort to improve service, we are making additional changes to the employee parking lot(s) to reduce wait times and provide for better sequencing of the shuttles.
• Effective April 16, 2018, at midnight, each parking lot will be dedicated to an Employee Terminal Stop.
• Lot 1 shuttles will provide service only to Employee Terminal Stop 1, serving the Rental Car Center and Terminals 1 and 2.
• Lot 2 shuttles will only provide service to Employee Terminal Stop 2, serving Terminals 3 and 4.
• There will be no change to ADA services. 
When the shuttle arrives curbside at the Terminal Employee Stop, all guests onboard the shuttle will exit, allowing a larger number of guests waiting at the stop the ability to board the first shuttle that arrives.  Every shuttle picking-up at the Terminal Employee Stop will utilize its full capacity to transport more guests in queue.
Over the next few months, we will continue to explore further enhancements to improve your overall experience. We will notify you in advance of these changes. 
For compliments or concerns regarding the shuttle, call (888) 879-1540.

​Employee Lot ​Station Closures (2018)

As a result of your comments, we are making changes to the employee lot shuttle service. The first of these changes will be effective Wednesday, February 21st, 2018, at midnight, which involves closing four (4) employee station stops - Lot 1: D, F & K, and Lot 2: Q. By closing these stops, it will decrease the commute time and the number of out of service shuttles in the lot(s). However, these stops will remain open to assist our ADA team members for pick-up/drop-off.  View employee parking lot reminders.​

  • Airport employee parking was relocated from an off-site lot to the Cypress Garage as a temporary measure in 2007. This was during the peak of a national recession because it was underutilized by passengers at this time but had room for airport employees. Today, that is not the case.
  • To accommodate the increase in passengers, more airport employees are needed. There is now a shortage of parking spaces in the Cypress Garage. At peak times, from 14–17 hours per day, nearly 4,000 employees attempt to park in 3,143 spaces. ​​​
