Disaster drill to test first responders happens today

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It will be a busy morning for a lot of first responders in midtown.  There is a scheduled drill that will simulate a major disaster. 

Hi Corbett Field is where the simulated disaster will take place later this morning.  Again this is just a drill, but it is an important piece of training to the first responders who will be involved.

There will be plenty of people involved as this drill will be mocking some type of big explosion.  Crews from police and fire departments all over the area will be there, as will Sun Tran for transportation needs.  Over 100 students from the University of Arizona will be playing the part of the patients.

This looks like it will be quite a drill.
