It all happened at the Postal Processing Center on East 38th Street, but fortunately none of it was real.
The situation was part of a full scale emergency exercise.
First responders were on scene with their equipment and helped prepare workers to deal with decontamination simulations.
The drills are held to teach postal workers and customers how to follow directions in a crisis situation.
