Officials to hold terror attack simulation at Fenway Park

BOSTON (WHDH) - The Boston Police Department and the Department of Homeland Security will hold a simulation of a terrorist attack at Fenway Park this weekend.

According to police, officials will conduct a full scale counterterrorism preparedness exercise that will include simulated explosions and multiple rounds of realistic-sounding gunshots. There will also be a massive response from first responders and law enforcement.

Parts of Yawkey Way and Van Ness Street will be closed between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Sunday. Anyone who is not a part of the exercise is urged to avoid the area around the park.

The training will test how prepared first responders are. It will also test out new technology the city has.
