McGough sought to assure the public. “We are not Judgment Day,” he said, adding, however, that “their marketing campaign is probably larger than the one we have for Urban Shield.” www.bostonherald.com...
The $1 million exercise is paid for by a federal Homeland Security grant, McGough said. The cops, firefighters and EMTs — some of whom are coming from Cambridge, Everett and Somerville — will all be paid overtime and are estimated to pocket $400,000. www.bostonherald.com...
The next terror attack or natural disaster may occur within the MBHSR. Even though the Federal government has bolstered its capacity to respond to such events, experience tells us that we, as first responders, will be required to immediately take charge of any situation to protect human life. The question is, ARE WE READY? www.bostonurbanshield.org...

would be a terror attack?
The Metro-Boston Homeland Security Region understands that the threat of an international terrorist attack of this magnitude in our country is possible. As a result, the Boston region has incorporated a large-scale Mumbai type scenario into the Urban Shield Exercise. Regional government, law enforcement, fire, EMS and emergency management personnel, along with federal agencies including the FBI, ATF, National Guard, Coast Guard, among others are meeting, communicating and taking proactive steps to counter potential terrorist efforts.
During this scenario, hundreds of regional first responders including SWAT, Bomb Squad, K9, Fire, Urban Search and Rescue (USAR), EMS and others will converge on a large facility, which has been taken over by a group of heavily armed terrorists. Arriving command officers will follow the Incident Command System to form a Unified Command structure. Intelligence and communication systems will be utilized to gain situational awareness. As first responders arrive from throughout the Metro-Boston Region, they will be assigned to deal with a series of complicated issues including heavily armed suspects, hostages, explosions, secondary explosive devices, fires, partial building collapse, injuries, and more. During the Urban Shield Exercise, all entities will work together to handle the situation as it unfolds, and will be forced to integrate new tactics. For example, SWAT teams may operate alongside EOD techs to mitigate IED’s encountered during the assault. In addition, EMS and Fire may be escorted into “warm” zones to facilitate immediate rescue of critically injured persons while the gun battle continues in a different area of the facility.

So, maybe, "maybe" mind you, a luciferian type mindset behind the scenes--shadow government etc--tries to anticipate some end-time events. Every spiritual philosophy from Christianity to Theosophy has some "end-times" belief it seems. One side sees the coming chaos as rebirth others see ascension and others the return of God Almighty.
That's one reason I can think of outside of hard to believe coincidence: TPTB believe "IT" is coming, too, but haven't any better idea than pseudo-prophet Harold Camping...but thought they'd be ready just in case. And at least get up to speed in the process.
The picture montage they have is creepy as well.
