A multi-agency public safety training exercise is scheduled to be held on Wednesday, March 11th at Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport.

KAMC News reports that the airport will remain open during this exercise, and no impact is expected on arriving or departing flights.

The exercise, which starts at around 7 a.m. and lasts about 6 hours, is a multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional activity which involved the actual deployment of resources in a coordinated response as if a real incident had occurred.

This will ensure that local first responders and other departments are prepared to handle any major emergencies that could happen at the airport.

Smoke and flames may be visible from the training site near the airport.
