While city cops and firefighters participated in a much-touted terror drill at a Manhattan subway station Sunday, several EMTs griped that it was a farce as far as their unit is concerned — because it’s still nearly impossible for them to communicate underground.

“The Fire Department is gloating, saying, ‘We’re ready for it, and we can handle everything,’ but they really aren’t,” said a frustrated EMT who questioned how the three-hour drill among the NYPD, FDNY and Department of Homeland Security could be successful in a real terror scenario given the weak radio signals.

“Our radios do not work underground,” he told the New York Post. “If there’s an attack, we’re all screwed.”
