Albany --  The fight against weapons of mass destruction and terrorism came to Albany.

The FBI and GEMA held a one day seminar at Albany State University Tuesday. Just last July, First responders dealt with a situation when white powder was sent to a judge at the federal courthouse.

Tuesday's training was intended to provide real-world practical advice and training to deal with similar situations and potential weapons of mass destruction incidents.

"It's very important that we have these continuous training sessions all the time not just sometimes so we can build knowledge to local law enforcement emergency response team and what's going on and any new threats," said Asst. ASU Police Chief John Fields.

This was the fourth of five training sessions held across the state.
