Because lines happen
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 21, 2010
Crowd Control Direct is preparing for another busy holiday season, particularly for Black Friday crowds. After the tragic trampling accident at a Wal-Mart in Valley Stream, NY , it became all the more apparent that sufficient security measures were not being taken to protect the safety of staff and clients in many retail outlets.
As a result of this incident, police have made several recommendations in order to provide greater public safety and safety for a business’ employees during high-volume sales, such as Black Friday. They suggested the use of barricade or rope lines to manage crowds before the sale. They have also suggested issuing wrist bands or numbered tickets to clients as they arrive. Police suggest that patrons only be allowed to enter in small groups, that staff are to carry walkie-talkies to coordinate actions, and that the stores need to provide maps of the store where hot ticket items may be found in order to keep order and safety paramount in the minds of shoppers and staff.
Crowd Control Direct is aiming to support businesses which are planning for the record numbers of shoppers that are supposed to be hitting the stores this Black Friday. Their products, which can help businesses control their crowds, are designed to be part of a problem-solving approach to managing large numbers of people and preventing incidents like the one at Wal-Mart.
