These photos were sent my way by Mike Handley, Operations Safety and Emergency Planning Officer in the Airports Division of the territorial government’s Department of Transportation. I thought they were too cool not to post: They show emergency services holding a drill at Inuvik’s airport, complete with false rubble and volunteer patients.

The drill was intended to simulate response to an airplane crash.

Midnight Sun Fun Run 2012: Farrell Pope’s inspiring 5k run

During the 5k run (happening under the midnight sun, around 11pm) one runner displayed amazing dedication. Farrell Pope, high school student in Inuvik, completed the run despite a broken leg.

It was the highlight of the year. Pure, positive-thinking sportsmanship.
