Firefighters from the San Manuel Fire Department were among 300 first responders who took part in an emergency drill in which 60 passengers and four crew members were victims of a simulated crash landing of an Airbus A320 at San Bernardino International Airport on February 28.
This is the third year that San Manuel Fire has participated in this Multi-Agency, Multi-Casualty Incident Drill. San Manuel joined more than 20 other area agencies including San Bernardino County Fire and Cal Fire.
Training exercises such as these are designed for emergency responders to train in stressful situations.
"Our crews have mastery of the daily, high-risk, low-frequency events," said
