NC State will facilitate a full-scale emergency preparedness exercise on Wednesday morning, Aug. 8, in and around portions of West Campus near the intersection of Varsity Drive and Sullivan Drive.

The exercise focuses on emergency-response training for NC State and local, county, state and federal responders by simulating a real-world emergency. Areas in and around the Worsley Administrative Services Complex between Wolf Village Way and Sullivan Drive will be affected. Some disruptions to normal operations are expected. Those in the area of the exercise should follow the directions of safety officers during the drill.

NC State frequently hosts emergency exercises to test university and outside agency response and operational capabilities.

In the event of an actual emergency, campuswide evacuations are communicated by the WolfAlert Emergency Notification System. More information about WolfAlert and other important emergency management resources are available online at
