Gearing up for SnowGlobe, safety a top priority

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (KOLO) -- Around 20,000 are expecting to attend the 7th annual SnowGlobe Music Festival in South Lake Tahoe. The three-day event runs from December 29 to the 31st. It has sold out for the last three years and it looks to do so once again.

Days before the festivals, crews have worked to make sure everything was complete before the fans arrived.

South Lake Tahoe Fire Rescue personnel are also getting ready. The department recently bought mass casualty incident packs. The packs include necessary items for most emergency situations.

"Basically saving someone's life quickly and triaging them, so they can be transported as quickly as well," said Paul Bias, South Lake Tahoe Fire Rescue firefighter and paramedic.

Law enforcement from state to local levels will also have a heavy presence during the event, a response to the rise of attacks we've seen at music festivals here and around the world.

Everyone involved with SnowGlobe hopes the safety measures that are in place are never used.

"We work really hard to make sure we are safe from any threats that we think might try to hurt this event or the people here," said Lt. David Stevenson, South Lake Tahoe Police Department.
