DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Not a single person will walk through the gates for another two months, but already Vectren Dayton Air Show officials are thinking about how to keep those people safe.
"I'm sure events across the country are looking at making sure it's the best plan possible and we'll be doing the same thing," says air show General Manager Brenda Kerfoot.
But Kerfoot says they have a built in advantage that many other large events like the Boston Marathon don't have and that's the fact it's held at a site that's already secure.
"All of the access points into the show are monitored and checked so that does give us a different level of enforcing security that you don't get at a wide open event like that," Kerfoot says.
Kerfoot tells 2 NEWS she doesn't think visitors will notice any security changes that are made because of Boston, but they may have a better understanding as to why the security is there in the first place.
"I think people understand now why we ask you to open your bag or why we don't permit certain things on the grounds," Kerfoot says.
Among those items not permitted are coolers.
They're something many think would be harmless to bring in but that regulations don't allow.
"That is a requirement you don't have them on your site because they do provide a ways of doing things beyond what they're designed to do," Kerfoot says.
But for all the planning that takes place, the Boston marathon shows that it only goes so far.
"It's hard to prevent everything," Kerfoot says. "We certainly do our best and I think we have a great plan in place."
The air show will be June 22 and 23.
