Emergency Response Drill Completed at Rapid City Regional Airport

The Rapid City Regional Airport recently did a drill for their emergency response plan, reports KEVN.  The drill involved volunteer victims, the Rapid City Fire Department, and airport staff.  Jim Bussell, Rapid City Fire Department Public Information Officer, said that several organizations work together in a situation of this magnitude so it is important they have an opportunity to train together.

This is a tri-annual emergency training exercise that prepares emergency responders and airport staff for a commercial airline crash.
