First responders from several agencies will be taking part in a catastrophic training drill today on the Tacoma Narrows bridges.

The drill, which is hosted by the Department of Homeland Security, is not expected to impact traffic, though drivers might see the activity.

The training exercise is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the state DOT reported.

Teams of first responders from the Tacoma police and fire departments, Washington State Patrol and state Department of Transportation will be practicing their response techniques on the westbound bridge.
