Emergency responders held a large scale drill Friday simulating an anthrax attack on the city.
Over 1,500 workers from 13 city agencies took part in the biggest emergency drill ever attempted in New York.
It called for them to simulate the Health Department's emergency response plan by setting up 30 simulated drug distribution centers around the five boroughs.
The goal is to get life-saving medication to as many New Yorkers as quickly as possible.
Homeland Security is paying for the exercise, which is expected to cost nearly $1.5 million.
