PHILADELPHIA (AP) - SEPTA riders should not be worried about a large presence of emergency responders at the AT&T; Station in Philadelphia.

The city’s Emergency Management Office, police and firefighters are conducting a drill.

Wednesday’s exercise will simulate a decontamination response during a mass casualty incident after a chemical release.

Decontamination stations will be set up to aid those playing the role of the injured.

The drill is expected to end by noon.
