The university’s annual summer emergency drill is from 8 a.m. to noon, the school reports. Social media and university websites will play a part.

A similar drill was held last month at San Marcos High School.

SDSU police, along with law enforcement agencies from throughout San Diego County, will conduct a training exercise in the first through fifth floors of Love Library. But the library addition, including the dome and Manchester Hall, will remain open.

A strong law enforcement presence with several police vehicles and the university police command vehicle will be parked along Campanile Walkway, the school said.

The exercise will also include a test of SDSU emergency notification methods, including the SDSU Home page, SDSU Urgent page, SDSU Emergency Information Line (866-794-8832), SDSU Alert (text messaging), Facebook and Twitter.
