Hundreds of emergency workers from more than 30 agencies converged on Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday morning for a major disaster drill.
LAX Air Exercise 2013 was described by organizers as a ‘full-scale, simulated aircraft disaster drill’ designed to test the airport’s emergency response capabilities during a two-hour, unrehearsed exercise.
The drill is required by the Federal Aviation Administration to be conducted by Los Angeles World Airports at least once every three years to evaluate the operational capability and readiness of LAX’s emergency management system in a ‘real-time, stress-filled environment.’

Heads up: Emergency-response drill at Boeing Field tomorrow
April 29, 2013 at 10:06 am |
With Boeing Field in clear view of parts of eastern West Seattle, we wanted to share this alert just in from King County about a drill tomorrow:
When catastrophic disasters strike, the number of people in need of medical care can quickly overwhelm hospitals. On Tuesday, April 30, King County hospitals and first responders will practice providing critical medical support in the event of a disaster in a neighboring state.
An emergency exercise held at King County International Airport/Boeing Field will test the region’s ability to receive patients evacuated by air from other states, transport them to local hospitals and triage them for medical care.
On the day of the exercise, 42 mock patients will arrive at King County International Airport/Boeing Field, simulating a flight arrival from another state. First responders will practice disaster triage protocols for the incoming patients, transferring them to ambulances and transporting them to local hospitals. Businesses and residences near King County International Airport/Boeing Field can expect to see a large number of participating ambulances and emergency vehicles at the airport. Emergency vehicles will not use sirens or emergency lights during this exercise. The drill will last from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.

SEATAC, Wash. -- Firefighters have controlled a fire that burned as many as 10 cars in the parking garage at Sea-Tac Airport. Ten vehicles caught fire and dozens more could be damaged .
An early estimate puts the vehicular damage at $250,000.
"This is the first time we had a multiple car fire we've had to respond to where they were fully engulfed," said Perry Cooper, Sea-Tac Airport spokesperson.
Cooper says Port of Seattle firefighters responded about 7 a.m. Tuesday to the fire on the sixth floor at the north end of the garage. Flames were controlled with help from the City of SeaTac Fire Department.
The initial cause of the fire is a mechanical malfunction in one car that sparked and spread to neighboring cars. The fire is not considered suspicious or any type of terrorist attack.
