▶️ Disaster drill prepares RDM for the unthinkable

Dozens of patients. Multiple casualties. One goal: To prepare the Redmond airport, regional law enforcement, fire departments and hospital staff for an unthinkable disaster.

The Federal Aviation Administration requires airports of Redmond’s size, to conduct “realistic” commercial passenger aircraft disaster training drills once every three years.

Today, it was a “grisly” scene on the tarmac at Robert’s Field.

Central Oregon Daily’s Brooke Snavely was there for the exercise and has the story.
