The Vital Need of Security
There are number of reasons why security for your even is immensely important. One of the most significant reasons that you should make event security a priority is that it can help protect you against possible liabilities associated with your event. As the host or sponsor of a public or private event, you can be help personally liable for any damage or injuries that take place at the event, especially if it can be proven that you were negligent by failing to take necessary precautions. For example, one of our areas of expertise with public events is crowd control. This may not seem like much of an issue, but it does not take much for a crowd to get completely out of control. If someone were to get injured due to an out of control crowd and there was no crowd control on hand, it would be pretty easy for a plaintiff’s attorney to prove that you were negligent.
Having experienced crowd control personnel on site will greatly reduce the chance of the crowd getting out of hand.
Managing the Flow of the Event
Security personnel can play a number of roles at a public event, one of which is ensuring that the flow of the event runs smoothly. If the event has multiple stages or multiple acts, such as in a concert, it will be important to make sure that everybody gets to their particular spots on time. Our personnel is trained to get people though high traffic with the least amount of resistance and delay.
No matter what type of event you are planning we will be able to devise a security plan that will help make sure that your event runs smoothly and that it is a successful.
The Power of Presence
Statistics reveal that individuals and crowds are easier to manage when there is security personnel present. The simple presence of security creates a positive situation in two primary ways. First, people will be less likely to become unruly, and if they do, it will not be that difficult to reel them back in. Second, a security presence provides a sense of confidence, so that if something does happen, people will be less likely to panic. Our security personnel will able to guide them to safety.
For years, we have handled grand opening events, auctions, outdoor concert events, extravagant private parties, fundraising events and more. We also will help you with the acquisition of the NYC permits for generators, parking, street closures, site construction etc.
