Brooklyn, NY - Emergency Drill Conducted Outside Barclays Center By NYC Officials, Marine Corps.
Brooklyn, NY - The FDNY, NYPD and U.S. Marine Corps conducted a disaster drill Friday night outside Barclays Center to prepare themselves in the event of a terror attack.
Everyone in the area worked under the hypothetical scenario that there was a series of explosions during a basketball game at the arena and that chemical gas had been released. Medical tents, decontamination units and teams played out their rescue plan to get survivors to safety.
Commanders say it helps to get real world experience to see how they can improve.
