Rochester, N.Y. - A mock plane crash has been planned for the Greater Rochester International Airport on Saturday.
"We need to measure our preparedness," said Mike Giardino, Director of Aviation at the airport.
Organizers were unable to get an airplane to use; instead, school buses will be used.
"What I'm hoping to get out of this the most is to have responders working together, said Todd Bane, Airport Fire Chief. "Patient tracking will be a big part of this,"
Dozens of nearby college and high school students have been recruited to volunteer for the day-long exercise.
"It's exciting, (I'm) a little nervous too, it's going to be a long day," said Matt Fraser, a student-athlete at Monroe Community College.
Crash victims will be transported to area hospitals during the exercise, which runs from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
