CHARLOTTE, N.C. - University of North Carolina at Charlotte football season starts in a few weeks, and emergency responders made sure they're ready for anything.

The police and fire departments simulated a bomb threat during a football game.

UNCC’s police chief said a bomb threat is rare, but law enforcement agencies need to be ready for anything.

“We want to make sure we walk through all our steps. We review our evacuation plan for the campus. We review our safety security plan for the stadium,” said Chief Jeffrey Baker.

The chief said he didn't even know the scenario going into Wednesday’s exercise so that he would have to assess the situation right then and there.
