KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) –
Being prepared for anything is important for any business.
The Kansas City International Airport falls into that category and on Wednesday will hold an intense drill to ensure travelers and employees are kept safe in the face of any danger.
Officials have planned a full-scale emergency exercise including, what looks like a real plane crash.
The scenario will be a plane full of passengers crashing into a business plane on the runway.
Airport agencies as well as local police, firefighters, emergency responders and a flight crew will coordinate to complete the drill.
Everything that would happen if an accident had actually occurred will happen during the drill.
“This helps the responders deal with the folks, how to treat them, triage in terms of how severe their injuries are and transporting them to a hospital, treating them there and also we even have people who pretend they are the loved ones of victims,” KCI spokesperson Joe McBride said.
The drill will not slow down any travel at terminals B or C but passengers will notice the mock crash.
