Sleeping screener forces evacuations at Sea-Tac

Sleeping screener forces evacuations at Sea-Tac

Quote:
Thousands of post-holiday travelers were delayed Sunday at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport after a screener for the Transportation Security Administration was discovered asleep at his post.

"There's no indication anything happened. It's just that somebody fell asleep," airport spokesman Bob Parker said.

The federal TSA decided to evacuate all but one of the airport's five concourses in case there had been a breech while the screener slept. Security personnel checked the concourses, some with explosive-sniffing dogs, said Bob Blunk, TSA director for the airport.

The screener -- discovered napping at about 6 a.m. -- apparently was asleep for between eight and 30 minutes, Parker said. Shut-down concourses were reopened about 8:10 a.m.
Yay TSA

I'm guessing all but the South Satellite which is International, but I don't know, or Concourse A which is under construction.

The south satelite is not ONLY international departures. It is used for domestic NW flights, as well and frontier airlines and us airways have gates there as well. Even horizon has 1 gate there.
