?WMD Attack? Tests Crews? Skills

Local firefighters rescued "victims" Saturday morning during a weapons-of-mass-destruction exercise sponsored by the Idaho Bureau of Homeland Security at Friedman Memorial Airport in Hailey. The scenario involved a Horizon Air flight that crash-landed at the airport after an "unruly passenger" threw a white powdery substance around the cabin en route to the airport. Firefighters evacuated 16 passengers, several with injuries. Many of the firefighters were also virtually treated for exposure to a substance representing ricin, a lethal toxin for which there is no cure. (See story) Photo by David N. Seelig
