The Spokane Police and Fire Departments are dedicated to making sure our community is safe and secure each day of the year and during all special events. With the largest 3-on-3 basketball tournament in the world just a few days away, attendees are being reminded to follow a few safety tips.
Working with Spokane Hoopfest, the Spokane Police Department will be helping to provide security and safety for fans and participants. In addition, the Spokane Fire Department’s PedMed Program, a special operations program that deploys fire department paramedics in areas that are routinely inaccessible due to large crowds or terrain will be working throughout the event. Additional behind the scenes measures will be implemented as well.
Parking placards and/or red bags have been placed on many meters in the downtown area. Please do not park at bagged meters or your vehicle will be towed. These areas will be used for Hoopfest equipment, emergency vehicles, event equipment vehicles and STA buses.
