From 8:30 am to 12:30 pm on Friday, April 18, 2014 BART Police, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and Bay Area, state and federal law enforcement officers will be working with other local transit agencies to conduct joint security training exercises at the SFO, Embarcadero, West Oakland and Coliseum BART stations.
The training should not affect service. BART is giving advance notice about the drills so people will not be alarmed if they hear or observe activity related to this special training; or if riders see uniformed officers and police canine units accessing station areas; or see emergency vehicles parked near these stations and in BART parking lots.
The purpose of the training is to prepare for possible future emergencies. BART conducts drills throughout the year with other local and regional agencies.
