Friday 4/30/10

First responders from across the Hudson Valley will take part in a full-scale emergency drill tomorrow at the Westchester County Airport. The 11 a.m. exercise will involve seven fire departments, twenty EMS agencies, local police departments, the FBI and volunteer groups. County officials say Delta Airlines, JetBlue and AirTran Airways have also agreed to lend resources and support to the exercise. The drill will simulate an airliner crash and will include emergency responders reacting to the simulated incident. There will be smoke, ambulances, fire trucks and other emergency vehicles on site. The airport will remain open for normal operations during the operation and passengers in the terminal will be notified of the drill. The Federal Aviation Administration requires airports to exercise their emergency plan by administering a full-scale exercise once every three years. In Westchester, the full-scale drills are held every other year.
