When planning an event, it is important to note that not all your guests are coming with good intentions or sometimes you might get uninvited guests who have come to ruin it You must, therefore, take certain measures to ensure your event is safe. Here are some must haves in to ensure an event is safe:
1. Security guards
You should consider having armed security guards in your event in case some guests or party crushers get out of control or become violent especially if you are hosting a big event. These can include guns, Tasers, sniffer dogs, body scanners and guns which should be used in case of extreme circumstances. The mere presence of security guards at your event is enough to drive away some troublemakers.
Some guests might not feel comfortable with security guards present in an event so the use of riflescopes is a good way of keeping an eye on your event from a great distance without your guests knowing.
3. Stun guns
Your security guards should also have stun guns in case there is a need to stop a violent reveler in your event. Where the use of guns are considered a last resort, you can use a stun gun to stop a troublemaker, hold them, and then call the police to take them away
Have CCTV cameras all over the event area and assign a security personnel to monitor all of them and report anything suspicious you the security guards positioned in the event for them to check it out. This will make your guests relaxed and give them a feeling of security with their valuables.
You should arm some of your security persons with guns just in case some revelers get out of hand and while waiting for the police.
Especially for events that go into the night, it is important to give your security guards flashlights and emergency lights in case of a power outage.
Have your security guards and other event planners use walkie-talkies to communicate. As much as it is convenient, it will also help in case there is a security breach in any part of your event the guards are able to communicate promptly and call for back up where there is the need.
8. First aid kits
When having any event, big or small, a first aid kit is a must-hay. If a guest or even your staff is hurt, you can administer first aid before calling or while waiting for an ambulance in case of such emergencies.
9. Fire extinguishers
Have fire extinguishing equipment at strategic points in the event area in case of fires. Make sure they are visible enough to the event goers and your staff so that they can be easily reached if needed.
10. Body scanners
When your guests are coming into the party, you should inspect them and make sure they are not carrying any weapons or contraband. Make sure all the guests and staff pass through security checks to ensure the safety of everyone in your event.
