Tuesday morning, emergency services from across the Rogue Valley responded to a plane crash. It was planned - complete with injury makeup to rival movie sets. This type of mass casualty exercise only happens every three years per Federal Aviation Administration requirements. For the two years in between each exercise, crews do a tabletop simulation where they use models instead of real people, a real plane and real fires. The plane crash, dubbed Rogue Airlines Flight 123, occurred just after 10:00 Tuesday morning with emergency responders arriving shortly after in waves as the severity in the situation increased. Medford Fire-Rescue, Ashland Fire & Rescue, Jackson County Fire District 3 were just a few of the agencies responding to the incident.
