If you see police and firefighters climbing on top of or rappelling down from the Roosevelt Island tram Wednesday, it is just a drill.

For the next five weeks, the NYPD and FDNY will hold training exercises on Wednesdays from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Officials promise the drills will not disrupt regular tram service.
