Secure Any Outdoor Festivals With These Tips

As the summer approaches, so does the festive season. Big, summer weddings, Fourth of July festivals and many other such outdoor events are great attractions for summer months. However, along with the such festivities, comes the problem of security. It is quite challenging to provide security for such events, without compromising the hospitality.

In the following post, some effective tips have been discussed which can help hosts and event planners to provide top notch security for festivals held outdoors.

1. Set Up a Boundary

It is essential for the hosts and the event planners to plan out a boundary. It is important that an exact perimeter should be defined relating to the entry of the guests. Ensure that the people responsible for the security are well aware of who should be allowed to enter the premises, especially for the events like film festivals and parades and fun-fairs.

In fact, you can hire a professional security agency who can work out with you to place physical barricades determining these borders. You can opt for fences and other barriers for this purpose. Metal detectors can also be placed around these parameters and the hired security company can also place armed or unarmed guards near the boundaries.

Depending on the event, you can even combine some or all of these techniques.

2. Collaboration with Local, State, and Federal Agencies

When responsible for extra large events being held out of doors, the hosts and the event planners have to deal with a multitude of people from the event staff to the security company personnel. In addition to that, for huge festivals, they must collaborate with the local, state or even federal agencies.

To ensure that the festival at hand goes smoothly and there is no dispute over power and authority, it is best to work out a security plan in advance. All the information should be clearly mapped out and shared with all the responsible people so that there is no confusion.

3. Make Hospitality Your Top Priority

Each and every guest attending the festival is equally important. Providing them a warm welcome should never be compromised for the sake of security. Whether it is the artists, celebrities, politicians or the common public, everyone needs to feel comfortable. The security should make them feel secure and not afraid.

Instead of intimidating the guests, the security should be humble and ready to assist them. With Security Guard San Jose, you will find comprehensive Event Security San Jose.

4. Be Prepared for Anything & Everything

When big events are organized, the security’s main focus is on the probable terrorism and natural disasters. Luckily, such threats are very rare, although they cannot be overlooked completely. So planning ahead for such matters is essential.

However, the most common problem that definitely occurs at such events is that the children get separated from their parents. In such a situation, it pays off if you have planned ahead. Listed below are some ways in which this problem can be resolved.

• Train staff members and the volunteers to keep a look out for lost children and take them to the information booth. And they should be familiar with all the emergency procedures needed in such situations. Also, ensure that during such occurrences, the child is never left unattended.

• Building a separate area for kids is a good idea as well. The children can be provided with identification wristbands with their parents and guardian’s mobile phone numbers to locate them when needed.

It is important the all the security staff and personnel are trained to deal with unfortunate situations like natural disasters or bomb threats or even an unfortunate but successful terrorist attack. Medical and first aid are important parts of a fool proof security.
