Kansas City sets up emergency operations center for NFL Draft

An emergency operations center has been set up for the NFL Draft. 

Kansas City, Missouri is hosting this year’s NFL Draft. Some 300 thousand fans are expected to participate in the three-day event, which begins Thursday. 

KMBC-TV in Kansas City reports emergency planners are hoping for the best, but they are planning for the worst. 

More than 100 cameras are around the Union Station area, where the draft will be held. 

A variety of events will be going on, such as a 40-yard dash, a Hail Mary passing area, and a field goal-kicking location. 

If fans pull a muscle, two first aid centers and a fully staffed emergency room will be on site. 

An on-site command post will have federal and local law enforcement as well as the Kansas City Fire Department.
