There is no cause for concern. This is only a drill.

That's the message SEPTA wants to get out in advance of its simulated subway attack at its Fairmount station Sunday morning.

The drill is scheuled for 8:30 a.m. at the Broad Street Line station located at Broad and Fairmount Avenue.

 

The drill will involve SEPTA and Philadelphia emergency and first-response personnel, as well as about 100 volunteers who will act as victims.

SEPTA said this about the emergency preparedness drill:

There is an explosion in the SEPTA subway system, the cause of which is not immediately clear. SEPTA and city-wide emergency personnel are activated. The exercise will test plans for a coordinated response to an emergency incident, including a terrorist attack. The drill will also cover practices for investigating unattended or suspicious bags and packages.
