After Hours and Weekend Event Safety: Assessing the Risks and Developing a Plan
This 60-minute webinar will look closely at the safety and security concerns of running an after-hours or weekend event on your campus.
In order to create a safe and healthy environment for everyone, we must first assess any possible threats using an all hazards approach and then develop a plan to respond to each potential problem.
Threats can include:
- Violence in the form of an active shooter, lone wolf attacker, civil unrest concerns
- Weather and natural disaster-based events.
- Health concerns in an age of COVID19
To address each issue properly, we need to create a plan that covers each potential problem and develop a response action for each. Any plan for an after-hours or weekend event must include:
- Pre-event planning
- All Hazards Threat Assessment
- All available resources
- Traffic flow (Pedestrian and vehicular) at the event
- Emergency Responders access and staging during the event
- Facility access and egress under normal conditions as well as during an emergency
- Security personnel, (types, positioning, and staging)
- Emergency Shelter options
- EMT/ Medical services and screening (COVDI 19) staging and placement
- After action review
- Understand the planning process including all potential issues and stakeholders.
- Learn about All Hazards Threat Assessment process and how to document it.
- Identify the issues in the All Hazards Assessment and address each one individually.
- Be able to write a plan and execute it
- Know how to conduct the after-action report
