Training at the Watervliet Arsenal Tactical, Medical and K9

The Watervliet Arsenal is located on the west bank of the Hudson River, about 8 miles north of Albany. It is the oldest continuously active arsenal in the United States, and today produces much of the artillery for the army. It has been a National Historic Landmark since 1966. Officers from the Troy (NY) Police Department, Paramedics from Troy Fire and Rescue, along with SWAT Team Medical Director, Dr. AJ Patel used the arsenal to practice officer down rescue and EMS techniques. Members of the NY State Park Police K9 Unit were also training at the arsenal.
