The primary purpose of this drill is to combine a series of emergency events that are designed to fully test the Cleveland Airport System's emergency response protocol as well as the emergency command and control function, according to a news release.

Cleveland Metro Life Flight and the Cleveland Clinic took part along with Cleveland Police, Fire, EMS and Public Health.

About 120 volunteers participated in the exercise, many of whom were taken to local hospitals for additional emergency exercises.
