An anti-terrorism response drill was held in New York Harbor Tuesday. The Maritime Safety and Security Team (MSST) 91106 will conduct a scenario where they will confront and apprehend a boat of terrorist's attempting to sabotage the Statue of Liberty. The team, created in direct response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks two years ago, is a domestic mobile unit with specialized training and capabilities to perform a broad spectrum of port safety and security operations. The team is staffed with 47 Coast Guardsmen ready to respond and deploy, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. MSST personnel are trained to operate under the threat of hostile chemical, biological or radiological attacks. Their high-speed boats are equipped with enclosed pilothouses allowing them to operate in rain, sleet, snow, reduced visibility and other inclement weather.
