Super Bowl showtime: How Glendale crews are preparing for the big game

Captain Ashley Losch explains the endless coordination at play, identifies the biggest hurdles ahead, and even spills a little big game tea

This episode of the Better Every Shift podcast is extra super because Zam and Janelle are talking all things Super Bowl with Glendale (Arizona) Captain Ashley Losch, digging into the fire and EMS preparations, training and coordination for this year’s big game. Captain Losch details the many moving parts of “Super Season,” what they’ve learned from the past two Super Bowls the city has hosted, plus how the Damar Hamlin incident has prompted additional questions.

Plus, we get into all this:

  • The big messaging change for this year
  • Maintaining citywide staffing during the big game
  • The tabletop exercise that had 150 agencies represented

What else …

  • Hot seat sneak peek: Best Super Bowl halftime shows of all time
  • Don’t miss: How the super-wealthy manage Super Bowl travel
  • Episode power quote: “It’s about connection, it’s about coming together for a common goal, making sure that people are safe, making sure that everyone has a good time, everyone goes home with good memories, and the sheer amount of people that are coming together to make sure that happens is really incredible.”
