NYPD: Subway test involving release of harmless gas set for summer

 The experiment is an effort to study how airborne materials spread through the system — and to prepare defenses against possible incidents.

The NYPD will release harmless gasses into the subway this summer in an extensive test of how the material spreads through the system, officials said Wednesday.
Cops will use the results to strengthen their tactics for responding to hazards ranging from possible chemical spills in the tunnels to potential terrorist attacks, officials said.
