INSTITUTE (AP) — Visitors might notice an unusual amount of activity on the campus of West Virginia State University.
A training exercise is scheduled Friday on the school’s Institute campus for local and state first responders, the university’s public safety officers and students and faculty, among others.
The drill is aimed at putting to the test an emergency response to an active shooter on campus.
Colleges and universities are required under the Clery act to test their emergency response plans on an annual basis.
This is first training exercise of its scope at the university.
