Santa Barbara Airport seeks volunteers for big upcoming disaster drill

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – The Santa Barbara Airport is seeking volunteers to play a role in a full-scale disaster drill set to take place in September.

All airports are required to hold a disaster drill every three years, and the Santa Barbara Airport's next drill is scheduled for Sept. 15 from 7:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

The airport is looking for volunteers to be passengers and bystanders in the big disaster. They will get to experience an emergency response to a mock reak-world disaster with real law enforcement, fire department, and emergency and medical personnel responding.

Volunteers will receive lunch and could receive service hours for their participation.
