A big anti-terror exercise for police and fire brigades is scheduled to take place inside Frankfurt central station tonight, Tuesday 20 March 22.00 until Wednesday 21 March 5:00. The northern part of the station hall will be closed off by blinds. Trains are running, they are using the remaining platforms so changes of track will happen.

I am posting this to alert people who are passing through Frankfurt central station tonight or staying nearby. The scenario can be expected to a appear scary, including the sounds of shooting and statists enacting injured people. Do not panic. THIS IS NOT REAL. It is an exercise, practice, training.
