Lots of players in service for the 2016 NBA Champions – The Cleveland Cavaliers!

Big parade today for the 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers the NBA Champions!


Early in the morning, the east side Rapid lines appeared to have 1,500 at the end terminals snaking across parking lots in Van Aken Blvd Plaza.

On the west side, people started walking in strange places around the airport. That’s not the best idea. And no, that’s not a sidewalk there.


Abandoning your car at the cell phone lot isn’t a good idea.

Parking was full to the gills. People were very creative in parking and riding into downtown.


Inside the terminal, lines resembled Disneyland style waits. Line was snaked down into the entrance of Rapid entry…


…then lines continued through baggage claim and out past the rental car pickup line. Likely a solid 1,600 waiting to get on the Rapid there.


Good time to remind everyone “If you see something, say something” – DHS


Deep inside the Emergency Operations Center (EOC), many people were working hard to keep everything organized and provide information to those teams deployed out in the field.

Trust me, lots of teams were deployed out and ready for immediate action.


I am especially Proud of Cleveland Police, Cleveland Fire, and Cleveland EMS who did their best with the estimated 1.3 million spectators who came into town to witness history and just “hang out”.


To those 45 families who lost their children during this event, public safety forces worked well together to shelter your kids and protect them from dangers.

Congrats to the Cleveland Cavaliers in their 2016 NBA Championship.

Hope to do it again next year.
