Toronto: Simulated Dirty Bomb Attack

CBC reports that Toronto's Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Response Team ran a simulated attack response in downtown Toronto:

The scenario involved terrorists detonating two bombs in downtown Toronto's financial district.

The first was a radioactive device contaminating a subway car.

The second simulated explosion minutes later was a hydrogen cyanide blast in a stairwell of the Royal Trust tower.


I wonder if such a test is actually effective? How can you really simulate the widescale panic that would ensue if such an attack occurred?
