Roosevelt Island Tram Cabin Rescue and Evacuation Drills Plus Regular F Train Service To and From Roosevelt Island This Weekend

You Tube Video of Portland Oregon Tramway Rescue Drill

According to the MTA there will be regular F train service to and from Roosevelt Island this weekend. Also, RIOC reports that the Roosevelt Island Tram will be out of service on Sunday from 6 AM - 2 PM in order to conduct Tram cabin rescue and evacuation drills and advises that due to Saturday's Run For the Congo Women Race there will be a:
Road Closure Advisory

On Saturday, October 4, Parts of East Road and Main Street (Around Goldwater Hospital and in front of the Subway Station) will be subject to closure between 9:30am and 10:30am due to a 5K race.

5K Race will be taking place around the perimeter of the island and will be contained mostly to the seawalls. Please plan accordingly.
Not that I am hoping for the situation to arise, but the rescue from the Portland Tram cabin looks like much more fun than the bucket used for Roosevelt Island cabin rescue.
