When a plane crash happens, preparedness is key to saving lives.

A special disaster drill at O'Hare Airport was conducted Saturday to test the performance of first responders.

The exercise requires reaction from equipment and personnel who would normally be available if the drill were an actual emergency.

More than 100 volunteers served as victims in the scenario.
