    Local and national military and police agencies will be staging a biochemical response exercise at Penn Station Friday night. 

    US Marine Corps, US Navy Corpsmen, NYPD, FDNY and OEM are participating in the full-scale disaster and terror drill, beginning at 9 p.m. and ending at 3 a.m. Saturday, officials said. 

    As part of the exercise, there will be a staged detonation on the train tracks at Penn Station, and Marines will bring up mock casualties -- volunteers simulating injuries -- and set up decontamination tents outside at street level.
