This past week the Bob Hope Airport held a required FAA emergency drill. The purpose of the drill was to train and evaluate emergency responses from its own Fire Department, Police Department and local agencies.
The Burbank Fire Department along with 11 other fire agencies responded. The additional agencies are all part of Area C which is dispatched by the Verdugo Fire Communication Center.
The drill was evaluated by more than 50 volunteers whose comments included some 60 patients who acted as actors and were victims as passengers on the aircraft. Those evaluations will be compiled and a final report will be discussed during a wrap up meeting next month.
Here is a gallery of pictures from the day’s event:
