Federal authorities are participating in a four-day nuclear attack drill at MetLife stadium in New Jersey
The drill simulates a nuclear attack on the New Jersey side of the Lincoln Tunnel, which connects Weehawken, New Jersey to Manhattan
FEMA is training with local medical teams to practice their response to treating the thousands of people who would be injured in such an attack
Conspiracy theorists were quick to call the drill a ‘false flag’ operation, which is an event to distract the public from a government-orchestrated attack
They were also suspicious of the fact that the drill was taking place as tensions with North Korea escalate
But officials said the drill – named Operation Gotham Shield – has been in the works for months
Similar drills are also taking place in Washington, DC and Albany, New York

As Kim Jong-Un showed off North Korea’s military might in a live-artillery drill on Tuesday, federal authorities just outside of New York City were testing their response to a nuclear attack.

The drill – called ‘Operation Gotham Shield’ – practices how federal agencies, local emergency management teams and medics would respond to the hypothetical situation of a 10-kiloton nuclear bomb exploding on the New Jersey side of the Lincoln tunnel.

On Tuesday, the second day of the four-day drill, emergency officials gathered at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey – which would be used as a decontamination and casualty center in such an incident.

Medics from Hackensack University Medical Center and about 30 mass care response units participated in the drill, setting up mobile emergency rooms and running through how they would process contaminated patients.

The drill was ‘notional’ – meaning no actors were hired to play sick patients for the exercise.

Morris County, New Jersey Office of Emergency Management Director Jeffrey Paul explained the drill in a post on Facebook on Tuesday.
