You can expect to see a little extra activity at the Grand Forks Airport this morning.

The G-F-K will be the scene of a mock emergency exercise. Around 100 participants will be involved in the drill. The airport is required to conduct the emergency “test” every three years per F-A-A requirements. The goal is to ensure the effectiveness of the G-F-K’s Emergency Plan.

Altru Hospital will be participating in the drill at their Columbia Road location.
