Band-Aids to Bad Guys

Acts of violence against large gatherings of people are becoming more commonplace and the count is growing. These acts of hostility seem to happen more often and in more vulnerable places, especially where people gather. It’s not a matter of if it’ll happen to your group, but when.

We can’t prevent all security risks, but we can mitigate many things and learn how to react when safety is an issue. What are you doing to make your conferences and meeting safer and more secure? Are you doing it the right way?

This session is an overview of safety and security and asks the questions that you, as a planner, will want to answer as you prepare to help keep your attendees safer. From Band-Aids to Bad Guys, get an idea of the scope of planning it takes and why a safety mindset from the minute you begin to plan your event is invaluable.

Learner Outcomes
• Apply a downline overview of safety
• Educate & engage staff and coworkers
• Develop input you need from stakeholders

Don't be a Hero. Just be Ready.

Event safety can be an overwhelming and daunting task. However, all you need to do is start with one thing. This session looks at how to begin the process of writing an Emergency Response Plan (ERP). Using guidelines and polices from federal agencies, see how to do a threat assessment and begin preparing for those threats and walk away with the genesis of your own plan.

Learner Outcomes
• Identify federal emergency guidelines
• Examine a risk assessment illustration
• Formulate the first step of your own plan
