MassDOT and the MBTA in conjunction with Boston emergency responders will conduct an emergency response exercise at Bowdoin station on the Blue Line.  The exercise is scheduled for: 

Sunday, March 6
8:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

The exercise is not anticipated to impact members of the public, nor affect the provision of transportation or public safety services in the area. 

As part of the exercise, portions of the abutting New Chardon Street, New Sudbury Street and Cambridge Street will have travel restrictions and limited access.

The purpose of the exercise is to ensure an efficient and professional operational response to an emergency.  The exercise will involve transportation and public safety personnel working through an emergency scenario inside the station and then making decisions and communicating those decisions in a coordinated manner.

The agencies that will be participating in the exercise include the MBTA, MBTA Transit Police, MassDOT, MEMA, Massachusetts State Police, Boston Fire Department, Boston Police Department, Boston Emergency Medical Services and the FBI.
