NEWARK, New Jersey — Officials say an emergency drill at Newark Liberty International Airport is not expected to delay flight operations.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says Saturday night's drill will allow airport and local emergency responders to train together.

The agency says the public might see numerous emergency vehicles and simulated smoke at the airport between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Officials say the drill will test the airport's emergency plan for mutual aid response. It will include members of the Port Authority Police Department, along with federal, state, local and airline partners.
