ECU finalizing preps for ODU opener

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

With just 2 days to go before the kickoff of pirate football season, ECU Police are preparing for the crowds.

In addition to using a bomb-sniffing dog to sweep the stadium, they've also got more bicycles and ATVs for officers to patrol the parking lots.
     
In 2012, weather was a problem. During one game, lightning forced a stadium-wide evacuation.
     
To help fans, an evacuation video will be played before each game. Officers are also getting ready for the heat as those first games of the year tend to be hot ones.

"During the week before the game when we can predict what the heat index will be at kickoff we know whether or not we need to roll out our heat management plan, so for games this year where heat will be an issue we'll have those cooling tents," said Lt. Chris Sutton, ECU Police.

ECU Police also say to expect heavy congestion near the stadium on game day. The tailgate lots open at 1 o'clock Saturday. 14th Street and College Hill Drive will be blocked off 4 hours before the game.
     
Saturday's game against Old Dominion starts at 7 p.m.
