How the City of Indio Prepares for Coachella & Other Major Events

Indio, California, is known as the “City of Festivals.” It is home to major music festivals like Coachella and Stagecoach as well as numerous other arts, food, and sporting events.

When one of these events takes place, the population of Indio doubles, making it vital to have an adequate emergency plan in place.

Dennis Day, Emergency Operations Center Manager for the City of Indio, shares how his team engages in year-round efforts to prepare for festivals and major events.

We discuss:

  • Adapting preparedness efforts in response to population growth
  • How Indio protects its citizens, festival-goers, and visitors during events
  • The importance of building relationships to improve emergency management
