Saturday, June 23, 2012

June 23, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) — A full-scale emergency response exercise took place at Midway Airport Saturday morning.

The required drill tests the response procedures of local, county and state agencies.

In Saturday’s scenario, crews responded to a plane that catches fire right before takeoff.

Eighty volunteers from the Great Lakes Naval Station posed as airline passengers.

The Chicago Fire Department is a primary responder in these types of emergencies.

They say part of their responsibility is to be in a state of readiness at all times.
