NYC mayor: safety drill a success


A citywide drill to protect the safety of New Yorkers in the event of a threat to the city was hailed as a success by Mayor Bill de Blasio who called the drill an example of preparedness and inter-agency cooperation.

“This is how we defeat terrorism, this is how we prevent the impact of terrorism. (It) is this kind of cooperation and this kind of teamwork,” de Blasio told reporters while flanked by NYC Police Commissioner William Bratton, FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro and U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson.

Officials said the drill was part of routine practice. It came one week after an attacked claimed by Islamic State militants killed 130 people in Paris.
