Two Local Disaster Drills Train Responders

REDMOND, OR -- Two drills taking place in Central Oregon aim to get first responders ready for unusual emergencies. 


Roberts Field holds a full-response disaster drill at the airport, Friday morning. The Federal Aviation Administration requires the airport to conduct realistic commercial aircraft trainings every three years. About 80 volunteers are expected to act as passengers, while multiple fire, police and public health agencies participate in the drill. 


Monday morning, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office will conduct an active threat exercise at the old courthouse on ‘C’ Street, in Madras. That drill includes Madras and Warm Springs police, and will force road closures and detours in the area.
