Amagansett, NY (April 24, 2024) – A dramatic scene unfolded on Sunday, April 21, as emergency responders converged on Montauk HWY for a mass casualty incident drill involving a simulated Long Island RailRoad train derailment. The exercise, staged by East Hampton Town emergency services. Featured actors as passengers and artificial smoke to mimic a real accident scenario.

The drill scenario involved a passenger train striking a vehicle at a grade crossing, leading to a derailment and a fire in the train’s first car. Actors portrayed various injuries, enhancing the realism of the response efforts.

Local fire, EMS, and police units participated, along with Stony Brook Southampton Hospital and the MTA Long Island Rail Road. Ambulances transported actors to the hospital, ensuring that the drill did not hinder actual emergency services or hospital access.
