Want to help stress test a new terminal at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)?

The Los Angeles Times‘ Mary Forgione says the airport needs 500 people “to come to its newest concourse and behave badly, or sickly, or feebly.”

Volunteers will test out a new, midfield terminal that connects to the airport’s Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT).

“The test will be staged to ensure that emergency responders, airline and concessionaire staffers, and equipment workers know how to operate and navigate the $1.6-billion concourse,” Ms. Forgione explains. “That means knowing what to do if the boarding bridge doesn’t operate properly, or a stalled plane blocks gates for incoming flights, or a passenger falls and breaks his or her leg in the tunnel, or someone’s child gets lost.”

Making sure people can understand signage and that toilets are all functional are just some of the little things that can turn into big problems if not properly vetted.

The airport is looking for a wide range of volunteers — children, elderly, folks in wheelchairs, and more.

Ms. Forgione notes, “Volunteers can expect to be on-site for about half a day, and will be provided with beverages and a meal.”

So if you live in the Los Angeles area and want to sign up, visit MSC Trials Volunteer Survey (My daughter and I registered. 🙂 )
