Students and staff members in Kanawha County will be practicing an emergency drill Thursday morning in order to be better prepared.

The shelter in place drill starts at 9 a.m.

Students will be moved to the interiors of their schools, with windows taped up and doors sealed.

The drill mimics what would happen in the case of a chemical leak or air-born emergency.

Thursday's drill was scheduled in conjunction with National Preparedness Month.
