26/11 Attacks Simulated to Check Security Preparedness

From Yoshita Singh

Boston, May 22 (PTI) Fire crews and SWAT teams simulated terrorist strikes modelled after the deadly 26/11 Mumbai attacks here today as part of emergency drills conducted across the city to check preparedness of the security apparatus in case similar catastrophes strike.

'Operation Urban Shield', paid for with a grant from the Department of Homeland Security, included 24-hours of emergency drills in Boston where first responders prepared for the worst.

The exercises culminated in a three-hour terrorist assault at the Boston Marine Industrial Park imitating the Mumbai attacks.

The fake terrorist attack was carried out to allow multiple agencies to work together, which authorities said was a kind of training they had never had before.

"We have to be prepared for everything.
