Radiological Dispersal Device Exercise
Sunday, November 17, 2013, OEM hosted a multiagency drill in the vicinity of MCU Park on Coney Island. The exercise was a culmination of a series of workshops and tabletop exercises simulating the coordinated response by multiple City agencies to a radiological dispersal device incident. The NYC Fire Department, Police Department, Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, and Department of Environmental Protection were among the other participating agencies, while Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) volunteers also contributed to the drill by playing victims. The exercise was designed to better prepare the City’s responding agencies for emergencies and keep New Yorkers safe.

Urban Search and Rescue Canine Certification

On April 20, 2013, members of New York Task Force 1 (NY-TF 1), New York City’s Urban Search and Rescue team, conducted a canine training and certification exercise on Staten Island. Canine search teams practiced search and rescue techniques on the city’s two manmade rubble piles. CERT members were placed into confined-space “hides” for rescue dogs to find. The National Urban Search and Rescue Response System has 28 advanced search and rescue task forces strategically located throughout the United States. Coordinated and overseen by FEMA, NY-TF 1 is managed by OEM, and includes approximately 210 specially trained and certified members from the New York Police and Fire Departments.
