At this time we were instructed to set up a temporary incident command post at St. John's College on West Street. During the staging of equipment a report was received via the New York City Police Department of a secondary device located in the school across the street from the staging area. Police Inspector Joseph Morris and Police Captain Robert Sbarra ordered the evacuation of the area and to move the most important equipment further north on West Street and reestablish the command post at North Moore Street and West Street. I encountered a network news crew broadcasting from the inner perimeter area and I advised them to relocate to a safer area due to the threat condition.

"As we were getting our gear on and making our way to the stairway, there was a heavy duty explosion."
"We really never even got that close to the building. The explosion blew and it knocked everybody over"
