Evacuation Planning

As a requirement for either fixed or temporary places of entertainment, evacuation is part of the emergency planning for a venue. Traditional provision for consideration of evacuation is through fire planning (evacuation) or closely assimilated.

Often overlooked is the requirement to consider the overlay of stewarding or volunteers, to assist in the safe and controlled evacuation of attendees. Working With Crowds will develop event evacuation requirement; in a manageable, dynamic plan. An event is at risk without a comprehensive evacuation plan, partial, full site, invacuation or dynamic lockdown, the safety of those attending is our priority.

To ensure a reliable and serviceable plan for event planners, venue safety teams, security and safety providers, Working With Crowds can further assist in delivering evacuation training, coordinate evacuation simulations and provide an understanding of the provided plans.

With the risk of attack to crowded places, the need for evacuation and invacuation planning has never been more relevant. Working With Crowds consider variations of potential attack and required evacuation, invacuation.
