Passengers and others at Oakland International Airport today could find emergency response teams at work on the field. But it will only be a test.
Airport officials said the effort will simulate an air carrier incident, including a rescue of "victim" on board a Boeing 757 airplane.
The exercise, held every three years to comply with federal
aviation regulations, will involve multiple agencies from Alameda County including airport, fire, law enforcement and medical personnel, airport spokeswoman Rosemary Barnes said.
Volunteers will be made up as "victims" for the exercise, and
rescue personnel will simulate a rescue on board a the Boeing aircraft.
