Harmless My Ass!
NYPD: Subway test involving release of harmless gas set for summer
Yep.. I always think a poster that has a guy wearing that kind of mask is safe... They say it's for testing the air flow for terror attacks in the subway.. but I'm sure that when they BUILT the subway systems they already did that to make sure airflow was enough for the amount of people it will hold.
The experiment is an effort to study how airborne materials spread through the system — and to prepare defenses against possible incidents.
The NYPD will release harmless gasses into the subway this summer in an extensive test of how the material spreads through the system, officials said Wednesday.
Cops will use the results to strengthen their tactics for responding to hazards ranging from possible chemical spills in the tunnels to potential terrorist attacks, officials said.
The citywide testing, which will be conducted with the help of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory, will include the release of the gasses in various subway lines and stations during three non-consecutive days in July, officials said.
