Elko Nevada Airport To Have Disaster Drill This Saturday

I live here in Elko Nevada and just noticed this in our local newspaper. There is going to be a disaster drill at our local airport. They will have simulated wounded, dead as well as grieving family members.

I am not sure how often this happens at this airport since this is my first year here in Nevada but I thought I would post it just in case something does end up happening here.

Since the bundy ranch issue among others around Nevada, there might be a gun run or other rights violations here in my state so you can never be too cautious.

Here is the link to our local newspaper with an article but a small blurb of the news article is below. Since the article is so small I don't want to include more than a sentence of it.

"To make the scene more realistic the airport will have controlled fires,"

and here is a link to the article itself:

Nothing to report

I will keep tabs in the coming days and weeks but it went like "clockwork". They are looking into getting drones here in Elko which worries me. They want to use one of the runways specifically for them ( or at least that is how the report reads.

Beware of Drills

Nowadays, many of the mass shootings and even the Boston bombing have somehow taken place while there was a drill happening or scheduled to happen. There was a large drill happening too on 9/11.

I think they are fairly common.

I think they are fairly common. I received an invite to a disaster drill at Seatac for this summer because I'm a volunteer disaster responder on the 787 line. I'm glad I saw this post. It reminded me I should probably sign up for it. I image it would be a good learning experience. In fact, you may want to consider volunteering for your local one as well. If more people like us show up, that's less "actors" we have to worry about, lol!

great thoughts

I just worry about since this is in nevada and everything going on, you never know what could happen. I do understand it is common but each "drill" that ended up being a real event tend to happen more and more these days.

Is there anyone else from elko here?

It would be great to locate fellow DP members in north eastern nevada. Anyone else going down to the airport tomorrow?

I have fond memories of Elko

of stockmans, basque food, sitting up on cold creek watching the sunset with a bourbon. Incredible sunsets. mmmmm.

Document what you can but be careful. They always seem to be happening near real events.

It really is

A beautiful city and the surrounding areas are amazing. The rubies really are something that everyone who might be passing through should check out and yes the basque food ROCKS out here.

I agree on the being careful aspect of things. I do know these events do happen at airports BUT it does seem that lately they are followed by a real event.

We have had school shootings here in Nevada which caused a small amount of Nevadans to ask for gun laws to be stricter but most here tell those types to F-OFF and with good reason.

My hope is that Saturday is exactly what they say it is, a drill however if that is the case I still think it is best to continue checking in at the airport in the days and weeks to follow to make sure nothing that "was a drill" becomes a real life event.

My only thought though is that our city is just so small and not worth the trouble to stage something here but who knows these days.

Who knows but it never hurts to stay up to date just in case.

Actually smaller seems to be the trend

for staged events.

I will see soon enough tomorrow

I will be there tomorrow and will check in through the next coming weeks. I will have my police scanner on which will allow me to get down there a.s.a.p. if I hear of something happening after the fact.

The good thing about elko is, it is mainly just ONE STREET long lol. It takes less than 10 minutes to get anywhere around here.

shows over folks.

Nutting to see hear.

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

that is exactly what I hope

is the end result.

just a drill

I do know that elko was looking into doing drone testing at this airport as well and claim it for cloud seeding ( for snow/rain fall reasoning )so who knows what might be in the works here.

The FEDs and thier drills are ...

scary! Not a good sign. Nevada is certainly on the map this week. I hope the drill doesn't somehow turn into a real event that is going to be blamed on some set-up patsy because the plan is to kill a few Americans just to make an example of how much we need the government to protect us from evil-doers. Be on your toes, America!

Good info--thanks for your post. I have family in Las Vegas.

Agreed

We are here at the top of the state and the last few weeks I saw military helicopters out here and not sure why. The amount of chem trails that they are doing here is INSANE but of course they state it is due to generating snow pack due to us being in the high desert.

I left california to leave the b.s. and find myself right back in it. The great thing is, the ability to wake people up in such a small city is much easier than the city I came from.

Most here are FOR GUNS, hell most females that my wife and I met have more guns in their vehicles and on their person than I do LOL. While there are many very confused republicans here, they understand much more here the ability to live and let live than fresno,ca ( where I am from ).

I just don't like the staged events and want to be there if anything does happen so the media can't spin it. I understand the need to train but so far in the last few years most training events is either followed by a real event OR it happens on that day specifically.
