VIDEO: Numerous public safety agencies are working around the clock to keep tens of thousands of fans safe at the MLB All-Star Game and all the events surrounding it in Downtown Denver.
Usually, agencies start preparing for an event of this magnitude up to two years ahead of time. But this year, Denver had just three months notice.
“We’re as ready as we can be,” said Lt. Jake McCaig, of Denver Health Paramedics. McCaig said the plan is to have up to 10 paramedics staffed at Coors Field and up to 20 ambulances in and around downtown. Plus, Denver Health will have paramedics on bikes and in large, powerful golf carts.
Paramedics also have special permission to fly a drone with an infrared camera around Coors Field.
