5 things to know before Donald Trump's rally

Posted at 1:57 PM, May 06, 2016

As the presumptive GOP candidate for president gets ready to speak in Omaha Friday afternoon, here are five things to know if you plan on attending. 

1. Where - Chances are you know by now that Mr. Trump will be speaking at a private hangar at Eppley Airfield. Doors opened here at 1 p.m. and the event is scheduled to get underway around 4 p.m.

2. Where to park - Parking along the hangar drive was already starting to fill up by the time our KMTV News crew arrived around 12:00 p.m. Parking will only be allowed on part of the east drive of Lindbergh Plaza. That road has been turned into a one-way street to help with traffic congestion. There are additional paid parking spaces available at the airport lots but they are first coem first serve and prepare for a walk. 

 

3. Security - The message of the day is arrive early and be patient from area law enforcement. With multiple agencies from OPD, airport police, Secret Service and several more all working together, there will be some slowdowns. 

Everyone attending Friday's event will have to pass through metal detectors. Among the things to leave at home, weapons as well as any signs. 

4. Who is introducing Trump? - The most likely answer is Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts. Several media outlets cite a campaign spokesman that Ricketts is expected to make the introduction. Also on hand is former governor of Nebraska Dave Heineman who will serve as the honorary campaign chairman for Trump's campaign in the state.

5. Can't make it to the event? - If you can't make it to the event KMTV Action 3 News will carry extended coverage of his speech. Our coverage will kick-off on KMTV.com and in the free Action 3 News app, then expand to Upfront at 4 on-air as the candidate's event gets underway
