CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The Transportation Security Administration is planning overnight training exercises at Charleston’s Yeager Airport this week.

The TSA says bomb squad teams and others will undergo training in explosives-related incidents at the airport Tuesday through Thursday.

The TSA says residents shouldn’t be alarmed if they see or hear emergency vehicles in the airport’s vicinity.

The West Virginia Air National Guard, the Kanawha County sheriff’s department and State Police are among other participating agencies.

TSA West Virginia federal security director Karen Keys-Turner says the training is a valuable opportunity to test the capabilities of emergency responders as well as foster stronger working relationships among agencies.
