WASHINGTON — Those near the RFK Stadium in Southeast D.C. need not to worry about the many law enforcement officials and emergency vehicles in the area Wednesday.

A mass casualty exercise that tests and coordinates federal and local agencies’ operating procedures in the event of a disaster will take place from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The annual emergency preparedness exercise will mostly happen around parking lot 8-A along Independence Avenue.
