All Special events should have an emergency safety plan that include designating a 911 caller(s) and have the below information easily available for an emergency response:

  • Entrance/Exit points and addresses
  • Description of potential emergencies
  • Event Lead(s) contact information

Some events will require Medical Support.   To help you determine if medical services are necessary for your event, please consider the below questions:

  • Will your event have more than 5,000 attendees?
  • If it is held during night-time hours, is there good or limited lighting in the area? Do you anticipate hot weather, cold weather or wet conditions?
  • What is the length of the event? Does your event run for a few hours, a full day or is it a multi-day event?
  • Have you encountered any first aid related problems with the event in the past?
  • If this is an athletic or sporting event, how strenuous is the activity?
  • Are there any other high risk factors that need to be considered? (i.e. crowded spaces, high-risk behavior, multiple locations/ alcohol and etc.)  

After considering the above questions, you will need to determine the appropriate level of medical services for your event.
