Aspen/Pitkin County Airport Volunteer victims needed to give first responders experience responding to an aircraft accident. Every three years the airport is required to conduct an Emergency Response Drill to test that preparedness of first responders. A mass-casualty drill will be held on Friday, September 14th at the airport. At least 65 volunteers are needed to play the part of victims of the crash (complete with full “moulage” makeup) and the part of distressed family members. If you or someone you know would like to volunteer please contact Adam Gardner at the Airport: 970-379-8406 or email@example.com.
