NEW ORLEANS- The Coast Guard and local officials are scheduled to hold an active shooter drill at the Port of New Orleans Cruise Terminal from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday.

Residents and community members around the New Orleans cruise terminal should expect large numbers of public safety personnel, equipment, sirens and simulated gunfire. This is a test of staff and equipment and will not pose a threat to the public.

·         Coast Guard

·         Federal Bureau of Investigation

·         Local and State Offices of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness

·         Port of New Orleans
