This course emphasizes the security tactics, visual aspects and reasonable care necessary for indoor and outdoor festivals and events. During a special event, considerations for business logistics, family and traffic continuity and action plans are needed. You will develop the skills and tactics necessary to effectively manage security and prepare for an incident by applying and implementing an approach that can be economical, practical and reasonable for your events.

The course was designed to help festival coordinators, event managers and related event staff, management personnel, public safety personnel, emergency response supervisors, and others involved in special event management to better manage incidents that could occur during an event.

Attendees will learn how to use practical tactics, worksheets, logistics and risk assessment tools and be able to analyze, manage and determine best security and safety measures for your individual and unique events.
