RENO, NV - Peckham Lane was closed Thursday morning because of a training drill at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Peckham was closed between Longley Lane and Airway Drive. The full-scale training exercise simulated a crash of a commercial jet at the south end of the airport and included responders from virtually every emergency services jurisdiction in Washoe County.
Approximately 100 volunteers played the roles of victims, wore realistic makeup and acted the part of injured passengers. The actors were in various levels of medical distress and were transported from the scene by REMSA.
