KU holds emergency drill Wed.

If you're around Kutztown University on Wednesday and see police activity, don't be alarmed.

The school is hosting an active shooter drill on campus.

University police and Berks County's emergency response team will be part of the training.

On Tuesday, the school tested its mass notification system, with announcements and alert tones ringing through the loudspeakers.

During Wednesday's exercise, multiple police personnel and equipment will be responding to campus for mock emergency drills to address different scenarios.

The drill, conducted by the Kutztown University Police Department and the Berks County Special Emergency Response Team (SWAT) team, will go from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The training will utilize the Golden Bear Village South Complex and C5 parking lot (behind Fairview Cemetery) on South Campus.
