Some Hudson Valley train stops had local and state agencies practicing emergency response Wednesday morning.
For Operation NY Secure, officers practiced their response in case of emergencies like a terrorist attack or threat came up at the rails.
The Beacon train stop is one of a handful of places they trained at. According to the state's Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Service's commissioner, Roger Parrino, it's important for agencies to have experience working together.
"What we're looking to do is make sure that the local police in cooperation with the state police, in cooperation with the Amtrak police, in cooperation with the MTA police, have a coordinated effort, they're talking and they're working together, should they have to respond to an incident," said Parrino.
Some of the other local training locations included Cold Spring, Poughkeepsie, Rhinecliff and Tarrytown.
