SIMULATION Aircraft Accident June 4. Victims still required!

Post by unclefeathers on Tue Jun 01, 2010 4:33 pm

Thanks to all who have volunteered for the accident drill this Friday June 4th. So far we have 14 people and we need another 8. Don't be shy come on out and be part of the drill!

WHEN: June 4 at 7:30am
WHERE: Old Skybus Hangar
WHAT: FAA emergency response drill required for airport certification.
HOW LONG: 2-3 hours (max)

Still developing scenario but so far we have CRJ/50 in-flight from Augusta GA to Palm Beach when the aircraft suffers a rapid loss of cabin pressure. Pilot declares an emergency. Crew then reports cabin is filling with smoke. Captain makes decision to land at nearest airport - KSGJ!. While attempting to land on Rwy 13 the aircraft departs runway and ends up in mid field (near AWOS) in multiple pieces.

The control tower calls airport fire and rescue who in turn call county fire department. Upon airport fire and rescue are met with smoke and victims (you guys) with various critical injuries. There are ten deceased played by dummies (no not you guys) on the plane (actual staged fuselage) and the rest of the victims are either still inside or on the ground around the wreckage. Actors (you guys) will have name tags on that display your injury type. The injured are removed from the wreckage and evaluated for further medical help or… We hope to have a life flight helicopter arrive on scene just to stir it all up.

Meanwhile, lots of fire trucks and rescue guys will do their thing and then you will be released back to the Skybus hangar. We will also be assisting SK Logistics with a practice of their emergency notification system as required under part 135.

We will have a fuselage mock up, two engine pods, smoke generators, lots of emergency vehicles, pandemonium and chaos and… Oh yeah coffee and donuts.

For those that have signed up. Please show up dressed comfortably as we will be sitting in the fuselage and then on the ground (on tarps).

For those that want to be part of this let me know as soon as possible. Unclefeathers@gmail.com

Thank you.

Simulation…At 8:55 this morning Oceania Airlines Flt 815 declared an in flight emergency 20 miles NE of St. Augustine airport. Aircraft had 32 souls on board and 1,500 pounds of fuel. They elected to land at KSGJ. Due to weather they had a hard landing and departed the runway. The aircraft came to rest near the AWOS area in multiple pieces. The airport tower contacted Grumman fire rescue with a level two alert. Upon arrival at the scene it was quickly upgraded to a level three alert and the county responded with all available resources. Kevin Harvey was incident commander.

Our intrepid actors (you guys) did a magnificent job acting out your passenger, crew and injury roles. We had 21 actors sitting in the dark and smoke filled fuselage for 15 minutes while trucks and rescue crews arrived. Everyone was assigned an injury or scenario to act out for the rescue team. Paramedics assessed the injuries and assigned victims to transport to hospitals etc.

Many thanks go out to the volunteers. It was a magnificent job. SAAPA can be proud of the help our members provided the airport and county in this important exercise. The academy award for best acting goes to dummy number 3. She was killed on impact. The runner up was John Roderick for his supporting role as a wandering drunk. During the post exercise debrief the rescue folks said they were actually wondering if John was under the influence! I explained when he is not in the cockpit he is practicing for just this type of role. Hopefully we have a video of Gunner getting dragged out of the plane and dropped on the ground.

I hope everyone had fun. Again thanks for your time and enthusiasm. I hope we never have to apply this practice experience to a real event.
