Montgomery DPS holding terrorist attack drill today

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Montgomery Department of Public Safety is conducting a simulated terrorist attack today as part of its ongoing preparations should the need ever arise to respond to the real thing.

If you're in the downtown Montgomery area and you notice a heavy police presence or officers responding to situations around town, there is no need to panic.

The drill is centered on an explosion at the Riverwalk Stadium in which more than half a dozen people have been injured.

WSFA 12 News reporter Bethany Wales is covering the exercise and will have details coming up in our newscasts today.
