Philadelphia officials provided an inside look at the city's emergency-operations preparations for the Democratic National Convention on Sunday.

Mayor Jim Kenney joined Fire Commissioner Adam Thiel, Police Commissioner Richard Ross, Emergency Operations Management Director Samantha Phillips and other city leaders about 12:30 p.m. to provide a walk-through look at the city's emergency operations center.

The center, headquartered on Spring Garden Street north of Old City, will serve as one of the major hubs for all emergency communications during the DNC, which kicks off at the Sports Complex in South Philadelphia on Monday.
