First Responders, NYPD Conduct ‘Dirty Bomb’ Drill In NYC

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A week-long series of terror drills involving dozens of agencies and first responders begins Tuesday in the Big Apple. The focus will be on one of the great concerns of the post-9/11 era: nuclear terrorism, Jay Dow reports.

WCBS 880’s Sean Adams: Training For The Nightmare Scenario

The NYPD and 70 other law enforcement agencies across our region will test their ability to detect radiological materials and prevent an attack orchestrated by four fictional terror cells intent on targeting New York City with a “dirty bomb.”

The drill began with a massive deployment Tuesday morning at the United Nations, and will run through Saturday.

NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly said New Yorkers can expect to see a heightened presence near bridges, transit hubs, and on the waters around New York City.

“We’ll be manning up to 400 checkpoints throughout the Metropolitan Area to test our ability to intercept radiological material. There actually will be samples of radiological materials,” he said.

1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reports: Details on the intensive, five-day operation

Kelly said over the next five days, residents can expect to see a heightened presence near bridges, transit hubs, and on the waters around New York City.

“The goal is to exercise our capacity to intersect radiological material coming into the city,” he said.

The exercise will be supervised by an outside consultant and, with overtime pay inevitable, funded by a federal grant.

“We’ve distributed, both in the New York City Police Department and other agencies throughout the Metropolitan Area 4,200 radiation-detection devices,” said Kelly

Particular areas that will be impacted include the Macombs Dam Bridge, the 225th Street Bridge, the 138th Street Bridge, the 155th Street Bridge and the Third Avenue Bridge.

“We need to be protected by whatever means necessary,” said Pierre Baptiste of Manhattan.

“With what’s happening in the world, it’s needed. We’re at war on all fronts, so it’s best to start here. Sooner or later it’s going to get here,” said Charles Watson of the Bronx.

Is New York prepared for a terror attack? Is enough being done to secure nuclear material worldwide? Sound off in our comments section.

  1. Howdy for all of you fighting to have that female you’ve always wanted, my best advice is learn to talk dirty to women. You should also have a positive and confident frame of mind towards females to win them over. I even have picked up a lot of women and read lots of adult dating guides. So take it from me, when you can learn those 3 things, you are able to pick up any sort of lady you desire.

    In Hermann Göring’s own words:

    “The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country, at any time. ”

    If they are looking for radiation, perhaps they should start with the Airport Naked Body Scanners.

    “TSA Admits Bungling of Airport Body-Scanner Radiation Tests”

    The Transportation Security Administration is re-analyzing the radiation levels of X-ray body scanners installed in airports nationwide, after testing produced dramatically higher-than-expected results.

    “It would appear that the emissions are 10 times higher. We understand it as a calculation error,” TSA spokesman Sarah Horowitz said in a telephone interview.

    Meanwhile in other News around the country, high levels of Radiation continues to make its way across the Pacific Ocean into Americas Food, Water and Ecological system. U.S. Government officials are encouraging Americans to eat, drink and absorb as much of the Radiation as possible, Homeland Security says the Radiation will make you strong, ensure liberty, and will keep you safe from a terrorist attack.

    Mothers are encouraged to feed as much radiated milk to their infants as possible. The EPA while it admits, they did make a few minor mistakes with the air quality of ground zero for first responders, they are 100% confident that feeding radiated milk to infants will allow them to grow strong and ready to serve the Homeland.

    More than likely none. Now, how many have had their rights shortened, violated or taken away by our so called Government. Think about the Patriot act.

    We have a PRIVATE Organization in control of our money who inflates and deflates to THEIR advantage. How is this not financial terrorism.

    Bombs? Not so scary. What IS scary, is our criminal government and their deconstruction of the U.S. in their rush to create the New World Order, the One World Government, after devaluation and elimination of the U.S. currency.

    What IS scary, is how three buildings came down with identical demolition explosives on 9/11, and only two of them ever were struck by planes with Arabs supposedly inside them. And how it takes weeks, if not months, to set all those explosives in place.

    What IS scary, is that we create unnecessary wars just to make certain rich people richer.

    What IS scary, is we are told if we don’t transfer huge sums of money from the U.S. populace to a criminal bankster cartel, the whole world will collapse, and the day after getting the money they laugh and admit none of it was true.

    When will the criminals who run our federal government see their day in prison? When? When?

    The good news is, the people are waking up. YOU ARE THE RESISTANCE!

    V for VICTORY!!!

    1. 1 World Gov says:

      What is interesting is how military “drills” of a plane hitting buildings were actually being conducted on the exact morning of 911 when- get this- it went LIVE.
      What is scary is that the biggest dirty bomb imaginable is now exploding atop the entire N Am continent from Japan, and these same govt hoods doing “drills” to “protect us” say “dont worry, be happy” plutonium is good for you and radiation helps your health. Wake up people, NWO is rehearsing to launch the next false flag and it will be at us.

      1. GAOTU says:

        Recall that UK Telegraph series in cartoon form where they illustrate the nuking of 6 cities- Mexico City, London, Toronto, Portland, NYC, LA on 6/23 around Feast of Masonic Christ? More predictive programming, quickly and soundly forgotten by the hypnotized sheeple.

  10. Fredo says:

    Why doesn’t the article tell us who the “outside consultant” is? I am very curious as to who it is. Some people are becoming very rich off this terror thwarting stuff.

    1. fireguy says:

      I actually know the guy running this drill. I can promise you he is nowhere close to rich. He is just about as blue collar as it gets; he just happens to really know the subject matter.

      1. Bin Lyin' says:

        Arent the govt protectors the same ones who seized all potassium iodide across the US so we cant shield ourselves? Arent they the ones who have taken many of the nation’s radiation monitors offline out west? Arent they the same who dub those who prepare their own families for disaster as ‘terrorists’ ??

  11. Fluoride says:

    Such drills and announcements are often done to condition the public for when the real incident(s) occur as suggested in “The Creature from Jekyll Island.” A further problem is complicated by the fact that the US is supporting terrorists in Libya, the same group (al Qaeda) that supposedly is responsible for our current condition of fear that lead to increasing taxes through the Department of Homeland Security which supports this drill – we are paying for this yet we have a budget crisis!?

    1. Fat Lester says:

      It is Soros/Obama’s goal to bankrupt America and confiscate the wealth of its citizens through the devaluation of the currency.

      With Americans being stupid enough to vote him/them into office, who is to say we don’t deserve it?

    2. Abu Grab says:

      THE WORLD’S WORST DIRTY BOMB HAS BEEN EXPLODING OVER USA for a month, adn these same clowns havent given a damn.. Maybe they should start the intervention and cleanup in Japan.

      What a joke.

  12. ConspiracyTheoristsRNuts says:

    Some posts here remind me of an old TV show, The Twilight Zone. What an assortment of oddballs and lunatics. Conspiracy theorists are like any other charlatans; inuendo, half truths and hysteria rule their words and beliefs. For them it should always be medication time.

    1. megaresistance says:

      its ok your just ignorant and can’t handle truth….its so funny how you can not debunk the conspiracy facts that you call theories…Instead you just jump to conclusions based off your willfull ignorance..So nowadays if you talk any truth that is differant from main stream media, that makes you a nut job, and a lunatic, that is so ignorant to think like that and proves how brainwashed you are from the government and media’s propaganda and disinformation…..stop drinking that fluoride (rat poison) tap water that the Criminal US government mandates in our water supply…. wait hold on you prob think thats a THEORY too dont you…we’ll its not a theory its a fact you can call you water company an they will tell you they put fluoride in the water… Fluoride is rat poison, its a soft kill ,its all about long term exposure that gets you sick…If fluoride is so good for you like they claim, than why did hitler had fluoride in the water at the concentration camps…your just another closeminded pruduct of today’s society

      1. megaresistanceisnuts says:

        More inuendo, half truths and hysteria, I stopped listening to the mainstream media years ago, I think for myself. You need to medicate yourself.

    2. Dumb downers rule says:

      When that time comes, and it will be here soon, and you are on line for your box of Yellow Cheese, and it comes to be your turn on line and there is no cheese left, tell ell us about the Twilight Zone then moron.

      Wake up and look down the block at all the closed stores, people on food stamps, no jobs, or just the illegals working. It is dumb downer ignorant people like you whom can make a difference, but rather choose to be blissfully ignorant to the reality all around you.

      1. Dumb downers rule is nuts too says:

      the comments that says: “Sheeple of Earth, heed my word!

      On 09/10/01, Seinfeld re-runs we’re being broadcast WORLDWIDE! Think about it!” ………………..

      that comment is not my comment……my comments can be found below….this was the comment i said: yea thats true……also on 9-10-2001 the day before 9/11 Donald Rumsfeld went on live TV and said that the pentagon can not account (meaning the money is missing) for 2.3 Trillion dollars….there has never been an investigation into the missing money..if you go on youtube can can search for: 2.3 trillion missing from the pentagon……..in this video you will see donald rumsfeld himslef saying that 2.3 trillion is missing….

      1. Looking for tranquilizer dart says:

        Oh….kay….[nods, makes move towards door] I, um…believe you.

  14. jake49 says:

    I say this training is worth it. Keeping New Yorks finest interoperable with various agencies who are stakeholders in an emergency is well worth the pretty penny we pay. One of the boyscout motto’s, BE PREPARED

  15. TY says:

    ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE ONE OF THE 30 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS ALREADY IN THE USA AND MORE THAN ONE MILLION ARRIVING YEARLY SET OFF A BOMB AND SLAUGHTER THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT MEN WOMEN AND CHILDREN ALL THANKS TO UNCLE SCAM ENABLING ENCOURAGING FINANCING AND SUBSIDIZING THEM

  16. megaresistance says:

    wow…see in this article its says the drill started from the UN (united nations) with a massive deployment… That right there proves that the UN is the shadow world government and controls our emergency services in NYC…also when the government and emergency services is preparing like this, I bet something is going to happen, prob another government false flag operation to declare martial law then all patriots and people that are against the NEW WORLD ORDER (one world government) will be rounded up and put into the REX 84 fema concentration camps….Once this happens all happens, we will be living in a full blown tyrannical world government……9/11 was an inside job here is the proof: ww w.ae911truth.o rg

  17. Lassiter says:

    I just read something I missed. There will be live radioactive stuff to track down, that’s rich, are we maybe testing the Japanese contamination?

    1. lemuria says:

      This is their way of being able to spread the radiation all over the city under cover of a live drill. Give it a couple weeks- maybe 4/11 or 4/22 or one of their other hideous occult holidays and they’ll “Discover” that terrorists let off a bomb- most likely hanging the false flag on Iran, Syria or protesters. Whoever they want to get rid of first.

  18. Lassiter says:

    How about the terror being emitted from JAPAN? Why can we not get any real answers, where is the international outrage at this lack of progress? If I remember correctly FEMA had drills in NYC on 9/10/01.

    1. megaresistance says:

      yea thats true……also on 9-10-2001 the day before 9/11 Donald Rumsfeld went on live TV and said that the pentagon can not account (meaning the money is missing) for 2.3 Trillion dollars….there has never been an investigation into the missing money..if you go on youtube can can search for: 2.3 trillion missing from the pentagon……..in this video you will see donald rumsfeld himslef saying that 2.3 trillion is missing….

    But let’s not tell people what the real radiation coming from Japan is and how bad it’s going to be over the long run of constant exposure.

    http://911essentials.com

    1. jim says:

      The real radiation from Japan is so weak that it’s barely detectable. There will be *no* long term effects at all.

      1. Fanny Forbes Franklen says:

        You’re delusional and clearly either paid to be or just degenerate by nature.

      2. middleton says:

        Got news for ya Jim, the release of 6 meltdown reactors storing 5,000 tons of plutonium is unprecedented and letting it go on for MONTHS, if not YEARS is the REAL TERRORISM. Why isnt the world racing over to help Japan handle this off the charts emergency?? The 9. quake and tsunami alone warrant massive global aid- add 6 meltdowns, posibly more, and these clowns response is to yawn?
        Jim, why not tour Japan on your next vacation? Hear the rates are fantastic right now.

    2. JOHN DOE says:

      DOES ANYONE ACTUAL THINK THIS IS A DRILL! THERE OBVIOUSLY HAS BEEN A THREAT REPORTED TO NYC AND THEY ARE PREPARING!

      1. Drew says:

        If you believe that then get out of the city. Otherwise stop being so dramatic

      2. Fat Lester says:

        John, the threat is posed by the Obama regime, which will not hesitate to kill tens of thousands of Americans so that George Soros, the UAW and the SEIU can maintain their grip on power.

      3. Jahbulon says:

        They are the threat you nitwit. ‘They’ committed 911 and ‘they’ will pull off the next one too. Why does it always have to be NYC? I guess if they’re gonna launch it at the UN, thatt’ll clear the way for the Worl Gov to be established overseas, like in… lets see… Masonic Jerusalem!?!!

  22. William Gill says:

    They should take those 4,200 radiation-detection devices over to the israel embassy and check there. I heard rumors that radiation can be detected coming from that building. All of the embassies should be checked cause they could build a dirty bomb inside and it’s like the building is their country so we can’t go in.

        why you so ignorant? your comment is such a typical ignorant comment….thats right you attack the person instead of the statement… see sheeple like you can’t debunk the truth, so you attack the person and try to discredit them….

  24. August Dunning says:

    these tests are for the real thing in chicago the end of this year…why do you think Rahm emanuel left so fast from the White house to make the election candidacy submission for Mayor or how the rules were bent for him to run. this is just like the amalgam virgo double hijack terror drill in the gulf of mexico 100 days before september 11 2001. by the way, look up what happened on september 11 1776 with Admiral Howe of the british navy – then look at new york again…..and who really attacked us and who keep sucker puhching us from behind and blaming others so we go fight.

    1. PULL THIS, LARRY says:

      Is that why Larry Silverstein, The owner of the World Trade Center during 911, now owns the SEARS TOWER?

        Holy $hit, forgot about that, and traitor Rahm will be crowned the MSM’s next “Mayor of America”.
        That hideous reptilian goon, QE2 was at the UN last summer for first itme in 57 yrs to signal the repatriation of the New Atlantis back into the Kiingdom of God on Earth, and The City of London of course.

  25. Fat Lester says:

    Seems we should probably expect a False Flag attack sometime before Obama’s reelection.

    I expect he’ll most likely impose Marshall Law and use that to indefinitely postpone the election.

  26. Ezekiel Z says:

    Like the “security drills” in New York on 9/11 and London 7-7 that suddenly went “live”? The “drills” are used to plan the attack. Wake up, folks!

  28. Frank says:

    I’m glad to see we’re FINALLY getting prepared for something that has been a threat for years now. But, why don’t we do more to discover what happened to Building 7 at the WTC? It wasn’t hit by anything, yet the 43 story building mysteriously imploded a few hours after towers 1 and 2 fell. Things do not add up. Why all of a sudden this practice drill in NYC? Why was Al Qeda visiting the Pentagon three months after 9-11? Why are the terrorists going to be tried outside of the US where the press can’t cover it? Surely we could have had the trial in a maximum security prison here in the midwest and given our reporters access to the daily testimony. Maybe we’d learn something as a result and put questions about 9-11 to rest once and for all. The fact that we haven’t gives rise to conspiracy theories and makes many people wonder if our government knows what’s its doing when it comes to protecting our citizens.

    1. Burn the Reichstag, end our freedom says:

      Frank,
      I don’t know if you noticed that the FEMA camps are very numerous across the continent, but around NYC? you have to drive over an hour to get to McGuire AFB or Otis Correctional facility, which are the Nearest FEMA CAMPS. The reason being, when the powers that be who pulled off the 911 job nuke NY, they will only need a camp outside of their kill zone. Anyway, this next false flag is just so they can declare Martial law and then its BYE BYE to Freedom in the USA as we know it

      1. Ticket to Ride says:

        There are lines of FEMA trains stacked up ready to go across the river outside Weehawken, NJ. Seen them myself.

  29. Robert says:

    So many years after 9-11 and we still have only a small length of our border with Mexico secured. That we might have dirty bomb material in the US should come as no surprise to anyone,

  30. Count Yob says:

    You never know when Mossad agents and zayanim might set up a false-flag operation using a dirty bomb in a bid to instigate a bigger war against Arabs and Muslims. Neocon zionists support such wars to “secure the realm” for Israel.

  31. Bob W says:

    Why after 9-11 was a top Al Queda terrorist dining at the Pentagon?

    My praise and thanks go out to each one of the first responders that are participating. Thank you for laying your lives down to protect this city and everyone in it.
