LOVELAND, Colo. — Colorado first responders were conducting an emergency preparedness drill at Northern Colorado Regional Airport (FNL) on Tuesday. The full-scale drill of a simulated aircraft emergency, which began at 9 a.m., was designed to test associated emergency plans. While the exercise was closed to the public due, people in the area may notice some smoke in the air, due to the simulated accident. The airport said normal daily operations will continue during the drill. Designed to present a no-fault, no-inspection learning opportunity for first responders, the drill was expected to last about two hours.
