Paterson Health Department holds emergency training drill

The City of Paterson Health Department held an emergency drill today to help prepare in case of a terrorist attack or natural disaster.

The two-hour drill focused on providing vaccinations in case of a biological attack.

Organizers say observers were timing those participating in the drill to see how fast they could vaccinate large groups of people.

Officials say they hold emergency drills twice a year in preparation for different scenarios.
