The Utah Transit Authority conducted a terrorist-bombing response drill Thursday in Murray that it called the "Train of Events."

It simulated multiple explosions resulting in mass fatalities. It established a Family Assistance Center to support the families of passengers.

Volunteers acted as victims and family members at the Murray Central Station, and at the nearby Intermountain Medical Center during the full-scale, four-hour response and recovery exercise.
