The Chicago Fire Department is warning the public about an emergency services drill that will take place this weekend in the area around Willis Tower in downtown.

In a public advisory released Wednesday, the department says that the drill will begin around 5 p.m. and could last until midnight. There will be a “large-scale” police and fire presence around the building, and radio traffic will sound like an actual emergency is taking place, but the public is assured that it is only a drill.

According to the fire department, numerous streets will be closed around the tower, including Franklin, Quincy, and Adams, during the drill.
