Boston’s Logan International Airport apologized Wednesday for running a fire drill, which included smoke and flames, on the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

The two planes that were hijacked and flown into the World Trade Center towers in New York City departed from Logan.

The airport had announced the drill on its Facebook page, and later posted an apology. It also noted that the airport held a moment of silence and memorial on Tuesday.

“This may be the single dumbest, most insensitive admin decision of all time,” one person commented on the Facebook post. Mass. Governor Deval Patrick used similar vocabulary speaking to Fox 25: “It’s just dumb,” he said.

Fire drills must happen,. and happen on a regular basis.  There is no good or bad day on which to schedule them - there are just days.  I'm betting that they would not apologize for a fire drill scheduled for December 7 any more than a British FD would apologize for one schedules on Nov 5 (Guy Fawkes Day).

Fire drills are an absolute necessity for public safety, which is why it simply doesn't matter the day on which they are scheduled.  Or perhaps you'd rather never have a fire drill.

"Or perhaps you'd rather never have a fire drill."

or perhaps they could have done the drill on the 10th or the 12. you know, days that aren't the most likely day of the year for a terrorist attack against our country to happen? are you really too dense to understand that? wow.
