Crowd Control for Special Events
Crowd control is an important component in organizing special events. Crowd management involves taking into account the type of event, audience profile, characteristics of the facility, crowd size and behavior, and methods of entrances and exits.
When there are large gatherings of people, organizers should plan for barrier management. The use of fencing
s and other barriers are an integral part of perimeter security and access control. Effective management of entrances and exits will facilitate crowd flow, queuing and handling of emergencies.
For most, planning a successful outdoor event might seem like a daunting task. For a list of what is needed to plan your next event, refer to National Event Service’s helpful infographic.
