Albany -- Albany State University will probably never be the target of a terror attack. But their Safety Officers received training from Homeland Security Monday just in case.

 Instructors from Homeland Security gave training on Weapons of Mass Destruction Awareness and Response. 12 Albany State Campus Police Officers and three members of the campus housing department were taught the warning signs of man-made emergencies or natural disasters.

It's part of the national program for emergency preparedness and response. W.M.D. Instructor Lyman Monroe said "You are not immune anywhere in the country. And this is just as good as anywhere. Your emergency services, Police , Fire, and EMS needs to be trained."

The Albany State Safety Officers were given instruction in chemicals, and ordinary products that when mixed can become dangerous.
