Oper­a­tion Gotham Shield

FEMA Nuclear EMP Strike Drill NYC

Starts Today!

On April 24-​26th, Oper­a­tion Gotham Shield will com­mence. It is a table­top, joint agency exer­cise involv­ing FEMA, Home­land Secu­rity and a myr­iad of law enforce­ment and mil­i­tary agen­cies. WMD, chem­i­cal and bio­log­i­cal units will all be on hand as a response is tested for a “sim­u­lated” nuclear det­o­na­tion over the United States’ fore­most urban cen­ter, in the iconic and densely pop­u­lated island of Man­hat­tan and nearby shores of New Jersey.

Other expla­na­tions and announce­ments have included the following.

On April 18th through May 5th, 2017, state, local, and fed­eral orga­ni­za­tions alike are plan­ning for Oper­a­tion Gotham Shield 2017 — a major nuclear det­o­na­tion drill in the New York-​New Jer­sey area, along with the U.S.-Canadian bor­der. Dur­ing this exer­cise, 4 nuclear devices, 2 of which are ren­dered “safe” dur­ing the U.S. Depart­ment of Defense (DOD) Vital Archer Exer­cise, and one suc­cess­ful 10kt det­o­na­tion in the NYC/​NJ area, along with one smaller det­o­na­tion on the U.S./Canadian bor­der are to take place.

Among the orga­ni­za­tions involved are:
U.S. Depart­ment of Energy (DOE)
U.S. Depart­ment of Defense (DOD)
U.S. Domes­tic Nuclear Detec­tion Office (DNDO)
U.S. Fed­eral Bureau of Inves­ti­ga­tion (FBI)
U.S. Fed­eral Emer­gency Man­age­ment Agency (FEMA)
U.S. North­ern Com­mand (NORTH­COM)
State of New Jer­sey Office of Emer­gency Man­age­ment
State of New York Office of Emer­gency Man­age­ment
City of New York Office of Emer­gency Management

Oper­a­tion Gotham Shield had been posted to the East­ern Region Heli­copter Coun­cil on March 27, which revealed more details about the time and place the drill would be con­ducted infra.

On Tues­day April 25th 2017, at 0800 the Gotham Shield Exer­cise will take place at MetLife Sta­dium in East Ruther­ford NJ. This exer­cise will sim­u­late a large scale ter­ror­ist attack on the NY/​NJ met­ro­pol­i­tan area with MetLife Sta­dium serv­ing as a triage/​collection point for vic­tims and emer­gency response per­son­nel. This will be a large scale event with numer­ous fed­eral, state, county and local agen­cies par­tic­i­pat­ing. It should be very sim­i­lar in size and scope to the Oper­a­tion Red Zone drill of 2011.”
