Waste Management Phoenix Open kicks off Jan. 27 at TPC Scottsdale
Capt. Folio with the Scottsdale Fire Department said they've been planning for the hundreds of thousands of fans at the Waste Management Phoenix Open for 11 months.
Monday, their preparation will end as the event begins.
Before you go they advise you hydrate, wear good walking shoes, wear sunscreen, have a hat and drink responsibly. The surfaces are uneven so ankle injuries and intoxication are the most common issues.
"Put your phone number in their pocket so if they come up to a pro-am person, a firefighter, a police officer... we can call the parents of that child so they can come up and get them," Capt. Folio said.
Folio says they learn something every year and this time they're focusing on how you move around the course.
"Flow of the traffic of people walking down the gallery -- we've changed a couple things, moved a couple tents," he said. "We want to be able to move people in, get people out on a Saturday when you're trying to get 200,000 people out the front gate. There's back up plans for that."
