If New York City is doing it, shouldn’t Toronto it as well?
Emergency responders held a drill in a Manhattan subway station this past Sunday morning. The NYPD, FDNY and Homeland Security took part in the exercise that simulated an attack by one armed man, as well as a scenario that featured four active shooters, multiple casualties and a suicide bomber.
This drill had been planned over the course of a year, but was tweaked after the Paris Attacks.
Following the drill, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio said that the agencies involved are working more closely than ever to maintain vigilante in the face of ISIS threats.
AM640’s Oakley Show guest host Lorne Honickman wonders why Toronto isn’t carrying out similar drills on its transit system.
Are the city’s various first responders ready to deal with an attack similar to the one that terrorized Paris a week or so ago? Should these drills be held to demonstrate to those interested in launching an attack that we’re ready to deal with anything that comes our way?
Would these drills make citizens feel safer, or would it freak them out?
