GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Training for the worst in hopes that it never happens.

That’s the objective of the tri-annual “Live Disaster Drill” that happened this morning at Bishop International Airport.

The drill began with a false alarm about a plane in trouble.

Different organizations, including local fire departments, police departments, paramedics and the American Red Cross responded to a simulated plane on fire.

“Victims” were even taken to area hospitals for treatment.
