CHAPEL HILL – UNC-Chapel Hill will hold an emergency response drill Wednesday at Davis Library, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. During this time, the 7th and 8th floors of Davis Library will be closed and those on campus are encouraged to go to other campus libraries.

The area surrounding Davis Library will be closed during this time, as is southern Raleigh St. Vehicles will be detoured down Country Club Road. Raleigh St. will be accessible as far south as the western entrance to the Cobb Deck.

Police will have barricades and signs up to show that the drill is in progress. During the drill, actors will simulate an armed hostage situation. The purpose of the drill is to practice dealing with an emergency situation in a crowded public area, like Davis Library.
