SAVOY -- First responders are getting ready for an airport emergency on Monday night. They have volunteers posing as victims.

They're simulating a crash right on the runway at Willard Airport. They plan to start around 6 pm. Volunteers got made up during the afternoon. That's to make it look like they actually have cuts, scrapes and bruises.

Emergency workers came from all over Central Illinois to practice including police, ambulance workers and firefighters. They do something like this about every three years.
