09/04/12 165 W, 2 I - + 3 - 4 Charlotte Street Closures for DNC

The Charlotte Observer has posted a couple of interesting maps on their web site, showing vehicle and pedestrian restrictions during this week's Democratic National Convention. Haven't found details (yet) on how fire and EMS personnel will be responding in those areas. Probably a mess of "gators" and/or bike teams. Maybe we'll see a news story about same. Click to enlarge:

More than 1,000 police officers-- from around the state, and including Chicago-- are patrolling on foot, horseback, and motorcycles. As this article notes, more than 50 groups have teamed to provide security, both local and national, such as the U.S. Secret Service, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Chemical Biological Incident Response Force, the White House Military Office, the U.S. Capitol Police, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Marshals Service and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. Wonder what the full list looks like? Maybe we'll do some Googling later.
