    1. Best Practice:

    Venue/event should prepare a BC/DR Plan for each venue/event.

    • Anticipate events that could cause the potential for evacuation/shelterin-place/relocation at the venue

     

    Objectives:

    These should be addressed in Risk/Threat Assessment Plan.

     

    Implementation:

    Consider using local DHS Protective Security Advisor and Infrastructure Protection Program to assist. FEMA can also provide resources.

     

    Applicability/Scalability:

    This is more venue-oriented because of the actual facility, but the impact of a disaster will also impact the event and future events.

    1. Best Practice:

    Identify security and safety needs for continuation, cancellation, resiliency and recovery.

    Implementation:

    Would also be part of a mitigation strategy.

     

    Applicability/Scalability:

    Business sustainability is the key.

    1. Best Practice:

    Mobilize event/venue staff, as a “care team” for emergency response, with method to notify and activate them.

     

    Objectives:

    Best utilization of resources for immediate response and recovery.

     

    Implementation:

    Company sponsored insurance carrier may be a resource for emergency planning and notifications.
