Super Bowl security trained at TEEX in College Station

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - At the Super Bowl this Sunday, about 1,200 first responders will be working to keep fans safe.

They were all trained for that right here in Aggieland.

The Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) trained them in incident management. The trainees learned everything from risk assessment to evacuation procedures to infrastructure protection.

While they are trained to deal with a person with bad intentions, the Ronnie Taylor, the TEEX training director, says instances like technical outages or natural disasters are really what they're worried about.

"Natural disasters are actually the more likely, although not necessarily the first that come to mind," said Taylor.

Kick-off for the 2019 Super Bowl is at 5:30 p.m. on KBTX.
