Local Authorities To Conduct Mass Casualty Drill Near Port Miami

If you notice a heavy police presence Tuesday morning near Port Miami, don't be alarmed: it’s only a test. 

On Tuesday, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, along with Miami-Dade Police and port security, will be participating in a joint simulated "mass casualty incident drill."

Intended to provide the closest possible simulation of an actual disaster, this drill will be recreating some of the scenarios that took place during a boiler explosion aboard a cruise ship back in 2003.

The drill is scheduled for 10 a.m.
