Security At The Big Game

While much of the attention is focused on the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks, there's a lot of work to make sure that security is at an extremely high level.
The big game is only a few days away. While much of the attention is focused on the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks, there's a lot of work to make sure that security is at an extremely high level. NewsChannel 34's John Kucko has the latest.

For any Super Bowl, security is massive. The spectacle has been declared a national security event, meaning nothing gets overlooked by those in charge.

"At a large event, a large and invisibile event like this, security depends, very much, also on public participation. Campaigns like 'If you see something, say something', are critical, are an important contribution to the effort."

As for any chance of a repeat from a year ago, when the lights went out? Not a chance here at MetLife Stadium.

"There are multiple sources of power that come from different power plants. More than one plant would have to go down for the stadium to be affected. Once the power comes into the stadium, there are multiple ways for it to get distributed around the stadium and those are redundant. Thereafter, there are a series of emergency generators."

The big game airs this Sunday on NBC-5.
