If you are planning security for an event, you are in for a lot of fatigue and strain. As such, errors or mistakes can happen, leading to a flaw in your security plan, hence here we will discuss a few precautions you can take to avoid any errors or mistakes from ruining your security plans.
The first step to tightening security is employing well-trained, experienced, and physically fit security guards. An amateur security guard may not act in an emergency with as much precision as a professional guard. Some people hire guards who do not hold any skills because of their budget restraints. Doing so puts your event at serious risk. Professional guards will follow their security culture. They will dress correctly for the occasion and act professionally. Hiring such guards will strengthen your reputation.
The second step is to discuss your security step with the event organizers. Your event organizer will be able to help you tighten security even further.
Next, you will have to perform a risk assessment, analyze all possible threats. Only after analyzing all potential security risks should you make your final security plan. Once you have made a risk assessment, ensure security protocols and discuss them with your security team. Following protocols is critical.
Right before the event, go through all the security measures you have placed. It is also recommended that you put an extra layer of security. For example, checking all the attendees at the entrance is an added layer of protection.
The final step is to always include a disaster recovery plan in your security plan. If all other security measures fail during an emergency, is there a safe exit for all the guest attendees to use? Even a foolproof plan needs a backup.
