Mock Emergency Exercises Took Place at Yakima Airport
A military helicopter and a commercial jet crashed at the Yakima airport on Saturday. That was the scenario in a mock crash exercise at the Yakima airport on Saturday. The exercise involved more than a hundred actors and closed the airport for most of the day. It was a chance for emergency responders from throughout the area to prepare for the real thing in case it ever happens. Yakima County Emergency Management Director Jim Hall says it was the largest drill ever conducted at the airport.
