Ferry Drill
During a drill, SWAT team members prepare to "secure" the ship Monday, Oct. 29, 2012, moments after boarding the Washington State ferry M.V. Salish, out of Bainbridge Island, Wash. In winds that kicked up whitecaps and drenched the small boarding boats, the U.S. Coast Guard and several police agencies drilled for a potential terrorist attack on a state ferry Monday by sending SWAT teams aboard the ferry while under sail on Puget Sound between Vashon Island and Everett, Wash.The all-day training exercise, six months in the planning, involved up to 100 people from the Coast Guard, Washington State Patrol, King County sheriff's office and Seattle police.
