How will CFD handle emergencies during DNC?

Hello again everyone, it's Paul Cameron in the WBTV newsroom. 

Tonight at 5:00PM—we know police have a plan in place for the Democratic National Convention.  We know they're concerned about anarchists causing trouble.  Tonight, we're asking the Charlotte Fire Department how they intend to handle emergencies when Uptown is full of convention goers.  The answer?  All hands on deck with all vacations canceled.  And you'll hear more about CFD's DNC plans at 5:00.
