Security measures set for Super Bowl

Increased security measures are set and ready for the National Football League (NFL) fans and Super Bowl crowds to enjoy South Florida. Metal detectors, bomb sniffing dogs, scanners, cameras, and surveillance are all weapons U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has in her arsenal. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will establish a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) around Dolphin Stadium. A United States Air Force B-2 Stealth Bomber is set to overfly Dolphin Stadium before the Super Bowl begins.

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano visited the stadium on February 1, 2010 was to ensure security measures are sufficient. During the visit Napolitano said, "I didn't have any suggestions to give, it looked pretty good to me, they're well prepared for the game", according to the Associated Press. FBI Special Agent-In-Charge John V. Gillies said more than 64 agencies will be at the Super Bowl's joint operations center, a headquarters for officials to handle security, according to the Sun-Sentinel. "There's security that the public will see, and there's security the public will not see," Gillies said.

The weather channel reports 65 degrees and sunset just after 6 PM. Passengers should check with their respective airlines prior to departure due to a good chance of snowstorms hitting New England region airports causing the possibilities of delays and cancellations of departing flights. Some visitors to south Florida decided to dodge the weather and stay a couple of extra days to stroll the South Florida beaches or enjoy a meal at a local’s favorite Bru’s Room.
