To ensure the safety of athletes and patrons at the World Games, the city is busy making final arrangements. World Games 2022 is an important International Sports event, which will require federal public safety as well as security assistance. The Safety designated for the event is just one level below the specialized national security event granted to presidential inaugurations and the State of the Union.
