Organizers with the Golden Globes say they are taking steps to prepare this weekend for what it is being called a once-in-a-decade storm in California.

On Friday, a spokesperson for the event told the Hollywood Reporter that one of the first steps to getting ready to protect the stars from the storm was deciding to tent the red carpet. They add that they are hopeful this move will be enough to prevent any embarrassing moments that could occur. (RELATED: Trump Fans Won’t Like The Joke Ricky Gervais Just Made During The Golden Globes)

“This is obviously a high-profile event and there’s a tremendous amount of security put into this,” Lt. Lincoln Hoshino, a spokesperson for Beverly Hills Police Department, told Variety. Adding that attendees should “absolutely” expect to see armed officers wearing body armor like last year at the event and other celebrations related the show.

“Absolutely,” Hoshino said. “That’s the norm. I know that we’re using a lot of technology at the event. We consider this a large-scale event, and there’s going to be a multi agency response.”
