Weapons Of Mass Destruction Drill

Terrorism isn't just something that happens in the big cities. Law enforcement officials say it can happen right here. That's why members of the Army National Guard's Civil Support Team and members of East Carolina University's police department participated in a weapons of mass destruction drill at an old warehouse in Greenville. Organizers say the drill was intended to simulate the discovery of radioactive material inside the building. Major Frank Knight with the ECU police department says Eastern Carolina is as susceptible to a terrorist attack as anywhere else. The specialized National Guard team conducts small drills like the one today monthly, and larger ones about every 18 months.
