Airport Drill Test Emergency Response To Mock Emergency

More than 30 government and private agencies have gotten the chance to test their plans and procedures in the event of a major emergency.


First responders from state, county and local government... as well as from Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport, the Illinois Air National Guard, and private ambulance companies... all took part in the drill that simulated the crash of a mid-sized jet with 50 to 60 casualties.


Students played the roles of injured victims, while participating agencies practiced triage and the logistics of response.  Participants say it's a valuable way to prepare for the unpredictable.
