KETCHIKAN — A test involving an active shooter on a state ferry is planned Thursday while the Matanuska is docked in downtown Ketchikan.

KRBD reports (http://is.gd/B4EgjV) the drill will involve personnel from the Alaska Marine Highway System and federal and state agencies.

Those include the U.S. Coast Guard, Alaska State Troopers, Alaska State Emergency Management Agency, and the Ketchikan police and fire departments. Those acting as victims were recruited from the Ketchikan community.

The three-hour drill is supposed to end around noon, and a debriefing onboard the Matanuska will follow.
