With over a million people expected to flock to the Bay Area for Super Bowl 50, safety is on everyone’s minds.
San Francisco leaders – including Police Chief Greg Suhr, Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White, and Keith Bruce, president and CEO of the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee – hosted a public safety briefing Wednesday to highlight their emergency preparedness and urge attendees to be vigilant.
"You don’t need to be a police officer or a firefighter to be part of our Super Bowl 50 team," said Anne Kronenberg, executive director of the city’s Department of Emergency Management. "Residents and visitors can take simple actions to take care of each other and our city."
Attendees are only permitted to carry bags up to a maximum size of 18-inches by 18-inches. Alcohol, firearms and fireworks, laser pointers, pepper spray, portable speakers, cigarettes and folding chairs made the list of prohibited items, according to officials.
People are also not allowed to fly drones near or above Super Bowl festivities, officials stressed.
