NYCT employees to receive anti-terror training

Posted on April 9, 2004

Employees at New York City Transit (NYCT) will take part in anti-terrorism training, authorities said this week.

According to the New York Daily News, the decision came on the heels of a letter written by union officials to police, Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) executives and other officials, complaining about NYCT employees being left out of police-provided anti-terror exercises.

"Our employees are transit professionals, but they are not emergency first responders,” read a statement by the MTA, which operates NYCT. “They are trained to identify an incident, notify the command structure and initiate evacuation procedures."

The training sessions include a mock subway car explosion.
