As we enjoy the Mardi Gras Season, law enforcement officials are making sure it's not just a fun time, but safe one.
Each year thousands flock to Le Festival de Mardi Gras and each year safety measures are looked into and mapped out.
While most of us are enjoying the festivities, a select group of people are making sure we go about it safely. Multiple command posts are set up throughout the parade route and at the carnival, ensuring a quick response in case of an emergency.
Rob Mallia spoke with safety officials and has details in this report.
