Day After Drill At Kenmore Air Successful
Experts say it’s only a matter of time until a big earthquake will hit the Pacific Northwest of the United States. That’s why some volunteer seaplane pilots in Washington took to the skies in a very important drill last Saturday in Kenmore. Organizer behind the event is Sky Terry, whom you know from previous articles. Sky faced a lot of ignorance and stonewalling prior to experiencing community and press support.
Volunteers gathered on Lake Washington to practice bringing supplies, providing aid to wounded people and airlifting them to safety in the event of a big earthquake and a possible tsunami. Saturday’s drill was an all day event involving more than 10 local organizations including the Washington Seaplane Association and the emergency volunteer air corps.
