PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

West Kentucky Community and Technical College will have a full-scale mock crisis drill on Wednesday, September 7 on its Paducah campus.

The drill will include a mock crisis scenario and a simulated response from police, local emergency management, EMS, and other agencies from McCracken County.

During the exercise the college will be on "lock down" and college entrances will be blocked for at least two hours between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.

The mock shooter drill is a proactive exercise for students and employees to rehearse the proper and safest response to an emergency.

No live ammunition will be used during the mock exercise. Only simulated ammunition will be used.
