  • Surge Drills

    Surge Drills (based on the comments on the following video), are post 9/11 initiated drills issued by the NYPD to practice for an emergency dispatch of large amounts of units to a single location.

    Onlooker Video of a Surge Drill: http://youtube.com/watch?v=kK59efdeY3k

    My question is just to ask for a bit of confirmation to this claim. There seems to be a lot of comments referring to the event as a parade (as well as the title of the video). However, I highly doubt this is so, primarily because a parade is usually announced and the lack of a crowd, other than passersby, tells me it's a usual occurrence. (although you never can tell if a new yorker is surprised )

    Also, if this is a drill for an emergency response, I would think lining the units up on each side of the road while a mobilization is in effect would be a slight waste of time. I am not criticizing the tactics, I fully trust the NYPD to be able to handle any crisis it is faced with, I am simply asking for clarification as to what the drill is exactly and why it is done this way.

    Thanks all,
    Leeza
