First responders respond to a "mass casualty" exercise simulating a passenger jet crash in a field near the Colorado Springs Airport in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2020. The simulated airplane emergency is part of the Federal Aviation Administration requirement that takes place every three years. Roughly 80 first responders and 11 agencies, including the Colorado Springs police and fire departments, tested their procedures in responding to a large number of injuries and deaths from a passenger jet crash or other aircraft emergency. The drill include dummies rather than live volunteers portraying casualties because of the pandemic.(Chancey Bush/ The Gazette)
