Piermont Pier will be closed to all non-emergency vehicles Saturday, but not for the summer motor vehicle-free day some expected.
Though emergency personnel and vehicles will be on the pier and in the area, it will not be the emergency it seems, either.
The Piermont Fire Department will host the simulation of a plane landing in the Hudson River with "mass casualties" Saturday involving local volunteers and state agencies from New York and New Jersey. The drill will be staged from Piermont Pier between 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The drill comes less than a month after multiple agencies worked together to respond near when a speedboat crashed into a construction barge near the Tappan Zee Bridge near Piermont July 26, killing two passengers and injuring four other people aboard.
