Emergency responders, law enforcement hold regional training exercise at Busch Gardens

If you notice several emergency vehicles in the area of Busch Gardens Wednesday, don't be alarmed. 

A regional training exercise is scheduled to run from 1 p.m. through the afternoon, according to Virginia State Police. 

"The public may see first responder and law enforcement activity at and around Busch Gardens... but there is (no) reason to be alarmed," a post on social media states. 

The exercise is not in response to any current threat or specific security concerns. It aims to promote preparation and collaboration among federal, state and local law enforcement agencies and first responders, the post states.
