Country Jam begins on Thursday night in Mack and local law enforcement is gearing up, reminding everyone to stay safe.
The event is staffed by private security, but the Mesa County Sheriff's Office will have a presence there as well. The Sheriff's Office will also be working with the Colorado State Patrol to watch for drivers who are under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
All of these entities want to ensure the safety of the attendees.
"Stay hydrated with lots of water. Either people just forget to drink it or they're drinking alcohol instead of water and we want to make sure that with these temperatures and the sun, the sun screen and the water are super critical to having a good four days out there," said Heather Benjamin of the Sheriff's Office.
The Lower Valley Fire Department is also reminding people on prescription medications to bring them along as there have been problems in years past with people not having what they need.
Another program called "Tag-a-Tot" is in place to help parents make sure they don't lose their kids.
And speaking of kids, there is a strict policy in place regarding minors and drinking. Any minors or adults contributing to minors caught will face the normal penalties but will also be removed from Country Jam and not allowed to return.
