If you were catering for an event, you wouldn’t dream of just ‘getting in food’. You would plan menus in some detail. Yet when it comes to event security, it’s something that is often shoehorned into planning without a proper definition of what is needed for the particular event, or what is expected from the security hired.
Part of your planning should include having a prevention mindset, rather than just reacting to incidents.
In advance, detail all the things that could cause disruption, so they can be stopped from happening. These might include the event’s date, location, those attending or the potential for media coverage.
Here are some of the things you need to think about:
Understand the risks and have a mitigation plan in place to minimise potential damage.
Integrating security into your event
Having considered the potential threats and determined what security is needed for each one, here are some basic issues most planners will need to consider:
You’ll need a plan in place for evacuating everyone in about three minutes, and to be clear on where escape routes are. Share these with everyone who will be present.
Accidents or incidents
What is the quickest way of reaching the nearest hospital? How would you handle a stage collapse? Where should people go to be safe in an emergency?
Have a strategy in place. Talk to local police, and make the most of staff and volunteers to deal with low-level threats. Monitor social media ahead of a sensitive event.
Essentially, security is everyone’s duty, and people know what to do in the event of an incident and who to tell if they notice anything suspicious.
