In April, Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority conducted a mandatory mass casualty disaster drill. The location was Dulles International Airport in Virginia just outside of Washington, D.C. These exercises are supposed to be held every three years.

Dozens of actors played the roles of the patients strewn around. Two of the mock-patients included our show regulars Becky and Dan DePodwin. Also on the show were co-hosts Sam Bradley and Jamie Davis.
