UNCC conducting exercise simulating a bomb threat

An exercise simulating a bomb threat during a football game started shortly after 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at UNC Charlotte’s Jerry Richardson Stadium.

No test “explosions” or other loud noises will take place, the university announced.

The exercise is confined to the concourse areas of the stadium and won’t affect the daily operations or parking of university employees and students, according to a statement from the university.

Charlotte firefighters and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s bomb squad and canine units are participating in the exercise, which will last until noon.
