Why Major Events Like Super Bowl 50 Need Complete Security Planning

With the big championship football game coming this Sunday, all those thousands of fans attending the event in San Francisco are going to be more focused on the great play on the field, than thinking about if they are safe and secure.

That mentality will not reflect those event coordinators, who are in charge of making sure everyone comes in happy and leaves in the same state (except those fans of the losing team).

Sometimes fights can break out in the stands; fans might run onto the field for their five minutes of fame.

This is where security must be alert at all times to break up disorder or eliminate the fans’ from creating unwanted disruption.

No fan wants to be at an event where the unruly take away from the product on the field.

And that’s not even the half of possible disturbances that event organizers must be wary of.

Paying good money for tickets, like the football championship, makes the buyer feel like they are entitled to that satisfaction of safety and security.

And as someone in charge of the event, you must provide that.

Unfortunately, when a sizable amount of fans or spectators congregate in one area, there are people out there that might look to cause harm for radical reasons.

Attacks can come from anywhere – if you recall the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, there was a bombing on the park grounds killing one spectator and injuring 111 others – this is obviously something you want to avoid at all costs, so how can you do so?

It doesn’t matter if it’s a sporting event like the upcoming big football game or if it’s a concert at your local arena, you want to be sure that the security is at its highest level to protect all guests.

How To Prevent Attacks Or Security Threats At A Major Event

Event security isn’t just a few security guards sprinkled throughout the venue either.

Your main goal for your event is not just to make sure the sports players play or musicians perform, but also that the guests leave how they came, in one piece.

From the beginning, you want to evaluate, plan and have proper security staff training prior to the event.

This requires getting with a security professional and going over the scenarios of what could go wrong, to ensuring that the event goes off without any unseen hitches.

During the event, the security plan must be put into action; someone must be in charge of managing all the staff and leaving you, as the event coordinator, with one less thing to worry about.

Also, you need to know that someone is ensuring guests can get into the event through the appropriate checkpoints, following the proper protocols, quickly and without concern.
