EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — The emergency vehicles, warning lights, smoke and fire at the Chippewa Valley Regional Airport are only a drill.
Rescue crews from the area will practice their response to a plane crash. WQOW-TV (http://bit.ly/1eWN1Uz ) says Eau Claire County Emergency Management is coordinating the drill beginning Monday morning.
The smoke and fire is from simulation equipment. Officials say the training is expected to wrap up by 8 p.m.
