Mock Terror attack now..

just saw this on CNA's website. Lucky i no work today..and today raining..sure got many ppl piss one....cant believe it last night have been raining the whole night....

SINGAPORE: A big civil emergency exercise is underway in Singapore to test the preparedness of various agencies and the public in case of a terror attack in the country.

Codenamed Exercise NorthStar V, it is Singapore's first surprise large-scale civil emergency drill, with 22 HomeFront agencies taking part and involving the disruption of public train services.

The exact date, time and locations of the exercise were kept a secret till minutes before the start of the drill, though the public had been pre-warned of it via media reporting and posters. This is to instil surprise and create a sense of realism to the exercise.

Simulations in the form of thunder flashes, smoke and fire simulators are being used to create simultaneous bomb attacks by terrorists so as to inject a realistic exercise scenario.

Apart from dummy mannequins, 'live' casualties are also deployed at stations' platform and in the trains to portray injured commuters and fatalities.

Exercise NorthStar V is taking place at four subway stations and a bus interchange.

The five exercise locations are Dhoby Ghaut, Toa Payoh, Raffles Place and Marina Bay MRT stations as well as the Toa Payoh Bus Interchange.

The drill started at 6.25am and will last till 9.30am.

While the three-hour exercise is confined to only four MRT stations, however, due to the interconnected nature of the train network, temporary disruption of services will affect a total of 13 train stations.

These 13 stations will be closed throughout the duration of the exercise.

They are namely:
1. Braddell
2. Toa Payoh
3. Novena
4. Newton
5. Orchard
6. Somerset
7. Dhoby Ghaut
8. Clarke Quay
9. City Hall
10. Raffles Place
11. Tanjong Pagar
12. Marina Bay
13. Chinatown

Bus services at the Toa Payoh Bus Interchange will operate as per normal as only a small section of the bus interchange is closed during the exercise.

Roads within the exercise vicinity will also be closed to traffic from 6.30am to 9.30am.

At the Dhoby Ghaut MRT station, a simulated explosion went off on a train just after 6.30am.

Immediately thereafter, announcements in four languages were broadcast in the station informing commuters that train services have been disrupted and shuttle arrangements have been made to ferry the passengers.

The first batch of affected commuters started coming out from the station at 6.40am.

The public can turn to the SCDF website for more details on the exercise and the road closures.
