Active Evacuation Workshop


The following presentation has been constructed over a period of time. The concept is to look at the role of crowd management in emergency situations that result from terror attacks and threats.

The information provided is in the form of a PowerPoint Presentation with the ability to change and rearrange any of the slides, text, images and images. We also provide a source of videos obtained from YouTube.

This workshop is designed to work in partnership with a client/venue to assist in their planning and management of emergency situations. We are all too aware in the industry that the national threat level is at Severe and we have seen mass gatherings targeted.

Traditional planning for venues is based on fire evacuation, but there is now a case of terror threats or structural failure being as likely for crowds being evacuated. Government/Police lead projects ( Griffin, Argus) focus on the terror threat and individual persons, they do not look at the larger crowd situations. We  can provide our expertise in crowd management to assist the client/venue work through the evacuation process in a controlled environment.
