Airport learns lessons from drill

Hobby Airport recently went through an emergency drill. The Houston Airport System is using what it learned to evaluate the airport's strengths and weaknesses.

Hundreds of firefighters and paramedics took part in yesterday's drill. Part of the process included taking victims, who were actually volunteers in make-up, to area hospitals.

Airports are required to conduct a full-scale disaster drill every three years.
