DPS preps for Donald Trump's visit to the valley

People heading to Donald Trump's rally this weekend will need to be prepared for the heat. The event will be held at Veteran's Memorial Coliseum, but attendees are expected to line up early.

The Department of Public Safety is the main agency patrolling the rally. Officials say they're ready for the heat -- from both mother nature and the tempers that flare between Trump supporters and protesters.

Parking gates open at 10:30 a.m. Saturday. The north lot and lots across 19th Avenue will be open. The lot off McDowell Road will be closed.

The State Fairgrounds has rules for people coming to the rally.

"No weapons allowed. The campaign asks no signs. They have their own they will give you. You can bring in bottled water with cap off, small bags, no big ones that will hold up searches," explained Jen Yee of the Arizona Exposition and State Fair.

There will be a lot of people at the rally -- in the thousands -- and the number one priority is keeping people safe.

DPS and other police agencies will be there to protect Trump supporters and Trump opponents alike. Protesters will be kept off the state fairgrounds. They're asking people to be respectful.

"Infringing on other people's rights is when you cross into criminal situations.. we will take swift action when people cross that line. We have seen the faster law enforcement reacts, the better the outcome," said DPS Capt. Damon Cecil.

There will also be protection offered by bikers' clubs and a group of Trump supporters called The Lion's Guard.

"There is a coalition of a lot of groups. 150 to 200 motorcycles here to make sure this goes off peacefully. We will have armbands, escort people to cars.. helping people just to be safe," said Kirtis Baxter of Riders USA.

If you're going to the event, drink plenty of water beforehand. Wear light, loose, long-sleeved clothing, a hat and sunscreen.

Items banned for the rally:

DPS is also asking people to be on the lookout for anything suspicious and if they see something, say something.
