We hope that event planners and the general public can read the guides provided by Homeland Security and feel a little more knowledgeable and safe.
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
EventPermits, an event marketing agency that specializes in special event permits, has offered information on the agency’s blog about event security. The information, provided by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), offers guidelines for event planners and security directors as well as tips for individuals attending events. The event agency has offered this information in light of recent tragic events in Boston.
“Events should be fun occasions,” said Event Manager Stella Fitzpatrick. “It is saddening that they can turn into such horrific events. We hope that event planners and the general public can read the guides provided by Homeland Security and feel a little more knowledgeable and safe.”
The main document provided by the DHS that is posted to the agency’s site is “Performance Venues—Indicators of Violence & Protective Measures.” This document lays out behavior and occurrences that may be indicative of a planned attack, and also provides guides for including protective measures in an event’s security plan. The protective measures guide hinges on effective and timely communication, as well as the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign. In addition, the document stresses that effective personnel who have received up-to-date training are an important factor in event security.
The Department of Homeland Security has provided training guidelines to go along with these recommendations. A link to this information can be found on the EventPermits blog for easy access as well as on the agency’s sister sites, http://www.pr-omotion.com and http://www.broadwayencore.com. On the blog, the agency stresses the importance of training, and asks that those in the event industry read the documents and plan accordingly.
