MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

Middle Tennessee State University is conducting training exercises Monday through Wednesday on campus to prepare for an emergency, officials said.

The exercises will be held from 8 a.m. to noon and include police vehicles, sirens, lights and weapons with simulated ammunition.

"Even though school is not in session, we would like to make sure the campus community and all our neighbors know about our training activities for next week," said MTSU Police Chief Buddy Peaster in a news release.

Spring 2013 classes begin Jan. 17. University offices reopened Jan. 2 after a nine-day holiday break.

Sgt. Broede Stucky, the department's training coordinator, said the exercise will be conducted at the Ezell Building and the Tennessee Livestock Center stock barns.

Vehicles and pedestrians won't be allowed in the areas, which will be marked off with orange traffic cones and yellow tape, during each morning's exercises.
