The convention, spread out over a week, draws upwards of 130,000 people to the downtown area for the convention and a host of additional programming and parties. EMS coverage continues around the clock. San Diego Fire-Rescue Department, AMR, and San Diego Police Department collaborate closely to make sure event attendees enjoy “The Con” safely.
