Special Event Security
From gatherings as large as music festivals, down to the level of a small speaking engagement, special events can present a broad range of safety issues. Particularly in today’s climate, where so many social functions are looked upon as potential targets by criminal elements. More than ever, these unique challenges require the experience and knowledge of a professional security firm.
Fast Guard Service has special event guards ready in Florida including: West Palm Beach, Kendall, Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa, Homestead, Sanford, Orange City, Jacksonville, Ft. Myers and Boca Raton. FGS also provides special event services nationwide including : Chicago, NYC, Los Angeles, San Antonio, Houston, Atlanta, and Washington.
Preparation is the key. Regarding coordinating security for situations as fluid as crowd control, what is done beforehand largely determines the success of the event. Understanding the venue, location, traffic and road conditions, normal weather, and even the terrain all play a part in the successful preparation.
Emergency Services: Establishing open lines of communication with local fire, police, and emergency medical services is another critical aspect of planning. Any or all of these agencies may play important roles in the event of an emergency situation. Ensuring that security personnel understands whom to call, and have all the appropriate information in advance, can be the difference between an escalating situation, and one they would handle effectively and efficiently.
Crowd Management: When it comes to the group itself, obviously knowing the type of horde you’re dealing. Even though it’s unlikely that you’ll have background information on any particular individual, there are still situational aspects that you should be aware. For example, handling patrons at a music festival is going to present different types of challenges compared to street partygoers, or convention attendees. Correctly identifying and assessing these potential problems beforehand will play a crucial role in successful crowd management.
Access Control: Once on site, a primary duty of security personnel is going to be access control. A strategy for effective access control is one of the most important preventative steps a security provider can take. What are the proper credentials for entering and exiting a secured area within the event? A crucial feature of making an gathering “uneventful” from a security standpoint will be controlling who gets in and out, and how they would account them.
Surveillance Equipment: In addition to having highly trained and skilled personnel, having the proper equipment for event safety is another important aspect. Equipment such as CATV cameras can be extremely treasured in both monitoring cases of theft, as well as documenting incidents to determine the party at fault. If this type of equipment is useful, it’s important to work with a firm that can properly install, test, and position it for maximum effectiveness.
