Emergency terror safety drill held on the Long Island Sound

Officers from local, state and federal agencies participated in an emergency terror safety drill on the Long Island Sound Thursday.

The drill was part of a monthly Nassau County STARCOM anti-terror taskforce meeting and included Nassau and Suffolk county police, New York and Connecticut state police, the Coast Guard, FBI and NYPD. The drill simulated a 911 call from a person who witnessed shoulder-launched missiles being loaded onto a boat in the Long Island Sound.

State Senator Michael Balboni (R-East Williston) says drills are important, but what Long Island really needs is more terror funding from the U.S. government.
