FDNY teams with Marines to stage mock suicide bomb, poison gas attacks

The city's fire department teamed up with Marines Thursday morning to respond to simultaneous mock suicide bomber and poison gas attacks.

An FDNY team raced around the mangled shell of an MTA bus, herding wounded "victims" to a triage area as real fire burned in the street.

Fire Commissioner Salvatore Cassano said the point of the drill was for firefighters and Marines to share expertise and to learn to work more closely together.

Earlier in the week, firefighters worked with West Point cadets responding to the aftermath of a simulated earthquake.

"When they finish this, they'll be tired, worn out, just like they were working a real-life incident," Cassano said. "If there's another event in the city, we'll be prepared."

The Marines were part of the Chemical Biological Incident Response Force, an elite unit stationed in Indian Head, MD.


Well, there ya have it. Military training for civilian ops, not combat ops...

Cool, huh? I'm glad that first responders are able to get that military conditioning, to enable them to pull thier .357 magnum in the one hand and shoot the gang members shooting at them, while the hose watering down the building fire set by looters is in the other.

fire fighters are pretty dang versatile I tell ya!

coulda used them Marines during the L.A. riots lol!
