The stadium on Wednesday is playing host to a disaster preparedness exercise that will simulate the response to a major terrorist attack.

The exercise is being conducted by the District of Columbia fire department and an active duty U.S. Marine Corps unit trained to respond to explosive emergencies.

The event will last from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is not open to the public.
