Recent tragic events have demonstrated a lack of discussion and training on what event staff can do in certain emergency situations. Following the horrific Las Vegas shooting last year, Newsweek published an article by Josh Saul titled CONCERT SAFETY: EVENT WORKERS SAY THEY AREN’T TRAINED ON HOW TO HANDLE MASS SHOOTINGS, AND IT SCARES THEM. You can read this article here: http://www.newsweek.com/las-vegas-shooting-event-workers-need-better-training-685269. This article struck a chord with me; particularly, a quote from a spotlight operator who was working the Route 91 Harvest festival: “Nobody knew what to do, where to go. We, the guys on the towers, we could turn a few degrees and look directly at where that guy was shooting from”… but nobody gave him or the other workers any instructions other than “Stay down.”
NEERP was founded shortly after the Las Vegas shooting with the mission to provide the local event industry an open forum and training to better protect themselves and others in an uncommon emergency. In doing so, we have inspired a discussion across Southern NH regarding what we as event professionals can do. We are bringing this discussion forward to our first event featuring local law enforcement and safety community members who can provide real-world scenarios and training.
